>Six Beaded Basilica Doors

>

The past week was a great week! I delivered my beaded Time Traveler Trilogy paintings to the South Shore Art Center in Cohasset, MA for their upcoming Media Mix exhibition. Then, I went bead shopping at Beaucoup Beads in Scituate. I also received packages of even more beautiful beads from both Artbeads.com and Beads Direct in the UK. I can’t wait to show you what I got, but first I want to show you the progress of my beaded St. Mark’s Basilica.

I finished beading the entrances to my felt Basilica. I used about 6 or 7 different shades of black & gray seed beads. Now, the doors don’t look so scary (in my opinion), but they still seem a bit intimidating. Or perhaps I am just intimidated at the thought of entering such Holy Places… How do you think my beaded doors look so far?

  1. >Could you have picked a more ambitious project? LOL. It's my favorite building in the world. I think yours looks wonderful – love the domes! Can't wait to see the finish. :)Anniehttp://www.slowtrav.com/blog/annienc/
