One Thousand Swirling Wishes

One Thousand Swirling Wishes

A mug filled with water sitting on the kitchen counter caught my eye...and this is the result. I had fun playing with color here, as well as trying to convey exactly why I was so enamored of such a seemingly simple image.

I remember how, as a child, I referred to fuzzy dandelion seed heads as 'wishes' and believed that each seed would grant me a wish when I blew them off of the seed head to their new homes. There seemed to be a thousand million little 'wishes' sent out into the Universe...

I posted its progress over on my Facebook in my Works in Progress album.
