Used wax drippings to represent the celestial stars, and then washed over with a giagantic japanese brush. It was fun to make use of natural pigments and hand mix with medium. Photos of ancestors I pulled off computer, rubbing my hands over their faces with gloss medium, whenI added a little smudge of gold powder on their heart or forehead or let it brush out like wings, I surprised myself, and became a bit moved.
