Liquid Topaz: Searching for Words

"Liquid Topaz, page 129," 5x7inches, mixed media, copyright 2011 Shelley M. House..

I love words, and I love including them in my art. But some days, I have trouble finding the right words to talk about my art. For instance, how do I describe the way the magic of moonlight inspired me in this piece? I’ve been pondering for days, and finally decided my short poem and image will have to stand on their own.
