New heart. My goal is to work with strong color palettes and simple designs this go round. With the intent of reducing these images down to 1/2" size it makes no sense to create too complex of a cane. Red, golden yellow and aqua have always been a favorite color combo of mine. The hardest part for me when I work on projects like these is resisting the temptation to prematurely reduce the cane without letting it settle for a bit. With the help of a David Sedaris book on CD - I was able to keep my mind occupied. By the time the book was finished so was the cane. It was also quitting time.
