Well, this was way too much fun to paint!

Acrylic on canvas.  Ready to hang.

I started with molding paste, crackle paste and tissue paper to provide a textured background.  Then I added bits of cheesecloth and handmade paper and a very watered-down background of paint.  

My newest find:  water soluble chalks came next.  I love them!  Wet them before and they make striking colors; wet them after and they weep wonderful striations.  

Then came Acrylic inks, crayons, graphite pencils, markers.  

Finally it was time to PAINT!  

There are layers upon layers and with each, the name changed:  first, Mineral Deposits. Then Fissures. Then Lava Flow (Frank suggested that one).

But after I put the last bits of my Sennelier oil pastels on, I decided on And the Skies Wept.
