Stories, both mythical and everyday, form a
pathway leading to the creation of artwork.

Here's a close-up of a some gold from the base of the cross: this is a material I love working with, both for its alchemical power and its beauty.

Something I'll need a bit more time to explore and write about!
Here's the rosy cross in negative, to give a sense of its soulful presence :)
