When The Moon Speaks To Me

Annette Spinks has been working on a brand new series, some great new colours and amazing abstracts. She was going to try some new mediums, but wanted to do just one more resin piece. She was so pleased with the result, and had such a wonderful time creating it, that it led to a this new series, yes still using resin.

Part inspired by the majestic super Moon's over Winter and part about not being too caught up in your plans, rather following your heart.
