Ancient Inspirations

So... Greece was pretty much amazing. I could go on about it forever. Athens and Delphi were overflowing with beautiful inspirations, and have given me some great ideas to work with.

The first, which I present to you this evening, is to make a series of etched pieces with ancient pattern abstractions, fill in the etching with enamel and let the silver outlines remain. Here are some of my brief sketches, mostly for ideas. I'm gonna try and get some of these babies done for my Yellow Springs Art on the Lawn show in 2 weeks... maybe try some in copper with a black patination as well... I got that from Rio Grande a few weeks ago, and I've been wanting to try it out.

And some images from the National Archaeological Museum in Athens. If they could do it in 5BC... man I've got some livin up to do, check these beauties out.

And the obligatory me and my husband vacation shot. That is the Temple of Apollo in Delphi tall and beautiful behind us.
