I decided to go to CASS which has an interesting collection of art supplies.
En route I popped in to Oxfam, and there I got my 2nd 'find' in a week....a small porcelain tea-plate with Lakshmi in the centre.
Lakshmi has been around a lot recently. I went to a Psychic Cluedo event as Lakshmi, and won a prize for my presentation, then at an experimental creativity evening I was invited to be Lakshmi again, and here is the plate, waiting for me.Sheer delight.
This is the image in the centre of the plate and next week I plan to paint her. Her essence began to come through when we did some painting at the Creativity evening and I think even more would like to be expressed. And yes, I did get some pastels 50 pieces with 49 colours.I hope they go down well.
