PPF and Rain's Thursday art date

Hi Everyone!

I have been busy making books and glass cabochons. I tried to take photos yesterday but the lighting was just horrible. Soooo for Paint Party Friday. Thanks to Eva and Kristen for hosting every week and to the amazing artists that show some of the best creations. 
 These are just three of the 30 cabs I made.

 Rain's Thursday art date is an interesting prompt. Jagged and ice. Now I will admit that these are not my photos, I didn't have time to go through old photos of Mendenhall Glacier in AK. However, I have been there many times exploring the beauty of it. There is something eerie and foreboding about going into an ice cave. Then, the blue of the ice takes you in and you become mesmerized by the depth of it.   

Have a great day everyone!

Honor and integrity in art, in life.
