I've been finished for a few days, actually, but just now finally photographed it. It's called Toxic Runoff, and is about all the emotions and events that sometimes send me into overwhelm, at least momentarily. I wanted to go back to a very simple technique, using only size 11 and 10 beads to tell this complicated story. In pictures of actual runoff, the chemicals can be quite striking and even beautiful with unexpected colors and flow, but they are actually poison. That's what I was trying to get at with the different bead colors. Even in the midst of this, though, there are still some clear and unpolluted parts, as indicated by the bright silver beads, symbolizing a small sections of clear and calm thinking among the runaway emotions. February was a more "interesting" month that I wanted. :- ) I'll be starting in on March soon, which, so far, has been much calmer.

This is just a random shot, and not in perfect focus, but it catches his general attitude perfectly. There he is on the bathroom cabinet, where he is not supposed to be. Click the image to see a giant, soft focus cat.
I'm working away on my February BJP, and will be done this week, I believe. But right now... I only got 5 hours sleep because I stayed up so late last night beading. Time to crash.
