ha thanks! it was a class assignment to use a favorite piece of text in a work of art... I first pasted down the text on the canvas, which you can't even see, and then painted the marbles over it...

This is such an amazing piece of work! How did you even come up with this idea? This is stunning! You have a real talent. Also, I'm just curious, what did you make this on?
