Betty Chen Louis Lacquer Grapes

I took this class at a regional seminar many years ago.  16 this summer I think.  I put it aside to work on other things and never got back to it.  It is a partly painted canvas worked primarily with Krenik metallic braid and cord.  I wanted to learn the techniques and never had a plan for the finished piece.

I worked on 3 of the leaves during the month of April.
