Tempera paint has a base of egg to it. It's not like that chalky stuff some of may remember from grade school. The early Italian Rennaissance artists used it to create some of the finest, delicate and detailed painting by layering tempera paint glazes on top of one another. Fabulous. In the 20th century the artist Maxfield Parrish used tempera to create his luminous images that many of us are familair with.

Enjoy her bio of herself and some of her work here. If you like clean, subtle statements then Pamela Tang is and artist worth keeping an eye on:
Born and raised in Australia, Pamela has always been surrounded by textiles, colour and nature. Her crafty mum had a fabric store and was always sewing clothes & ballet costumes for her three girls, while her dad nurtured close to 5000 orchids in the family backyard. A former graduate in Fine Arts and Industrial Design, her love for art and craft remained with her when she travelled to Singapore. Practising as an Interior Designer in several firms, including a five-year stint in an award winning architectural & interior design company, she was responsible for working on a range of retail, commercial and high-end residential project designs. Subsequently Pamela was commissioned to create a series of sculptures for an exclusive apartment complex.

I sold one of my new wall hangings yesterday. It's going out tomorrow. I am so excited. I hope they like it and she's going to a good home. I wish more of my quilts would sell. I personally think that they are different enough and original. And it's so hard to be mainstream. But that's why we are Indies and not mass manufactured, right. Well, anyway, I am really happy!! What a way for the weekend to go!
