Tho’ I wandered far from home
In a land of strange delight,
Sail where tropic waters foam
Sapphire blue and pearly white—
Wher’er I go, what’er I see,
The veld is ever calling me.

    Beautiful Elizabeth. When you say on X ray… do you mean on the film? Is that something you thought of? Does it make it more transparent or allows light to come through? I’m intrigued :)

  • Many thanks for the fav and kind words Maree. I paint on the film yes, just started it one day and enjoyed it so much. It is not really more transparent but very smooth and lovely to work on, also easy to get…..everyone has x-rays in the house! It looks excellent when framed and mounted. I sold many of them. (framed.) You must try it, I’m sure you will enjoy!
