This past week I attempted to find a short cut for putting together my ocean - it failed miserably. I also attempted to silk- mache a larger piece, which was also unsuccessful. I did sew more boxes, dye more cloth and expanded the blue whorls further. And then I began to experiment with using a scrim, dyed black. At first I placed it over the "water". In certain light it was gorgeous and shimmered like a wet surface. Just tonight, I stretched the organza in front of most of the ocean - and it looked so mysterious.
