finally done - with glitter and buttons and a gold crown and nails and lots of layers...
I made this one for a juried show at the artEAST gallery.
I started with a sentence from a vintage book:  
"Yes", he said, "we must set out now, but I can carry the lantern."

Which path shall I take?  One is straight and the visibility is clear; the other goes over hills and around the bends, and is shadowed and unclear.  I choose a new fork in the path each day and gather what I need as I go along.  Hopefully I search for the gems in all I meet and help others along life's path.  With my trusty guide and companion, I head out with my head raised, and tackle this thing called life with gusto and courage.  Challenges and setbacks await, but my friend carries the lamp and the light illuminates the way.

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -- 
I took the one less traveled by, 
And that has made all the difference.
Robert Frost

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.
Psalm 119:105
