"Deep Within"
                                                “Deep Within” by Marilyn Radzat

This was such a interesting piece to create because it just came together on it's own, telling me where to put the next stroke of paint and piece of glass.  I first painted the lady on canvas and then cut that out and mounted it on wood.  More paint was then added to the wood, both on the middle piece and on each of two side pieces.
It has a 3 dimensional feel because of the tempered glass that I used and because of the bird skull used as part of her head dress.
This piece of art has a kind of "ancient" feel because of the crackle glazing that I did and because of depth that the tempered glass adds.  I love this piece...I hope you do too! :)
