This piece began with a thin layer of wax applied with a palette knife and then iridescent pure pigment was applied with oil directly to the wax.  The texture was given to the wax before the pigment was applied so the pigment would settle into the grooves smoothly.  I then threaded a needle through the thickest part of the wax.  The signature used two buttons similar, but of slightly different hues.

Who typically mends in families?  Clothing and hearts and skinned knees?  The women.  Who mends the women?
