Every time I come back to the challenge painting I am mesmerized by the seemingly magnetic pull of those suction-faced tentacles reaching toward our delicate mermaid. It is a wonder that she escapes their clutches on her quest for whatever she is seeking. This fringe-laden design by Jennifer LaVite of Dry Gulch Beads looks just like one of those crusty limbs reaching out. All those many seed beads with just a hint of coppery leaves feel as those they are in motion with the currents. And that focal lampwork glass bead is certainly a treasure of the deep!
