Really cool!  Your artwork reminds me of an Andean geoglyph.

Very nice work!  Looks great. Was the dye a mixture or a straight dye?  What is the color?

I spray applied reduced fiebings navy blue pro for the main panels then a blend of navy and white pearl for the flap crest and the straps.  The white is a water base which I'd not mixed with an alcohol base die before but it seemed to work well.  The mix had to be agitated to keep the peal flakes suspended.  Then a final coat of resolve.  Edge coating is also a custom mix to achieve a darker blue.

Thats quite a smart looking bag and the design on the back . I am biased, but I love the colour, my fave colour, blue  .

Man, I have to try the air brush one of these days.  Gorgeous! Thanks for the added details.

It’s very stunning.

Is there a meaning to the design on the purse?

The back detail is a tribute to Micheal Parks Day and Night lithograph.

I was wondering about the Michael Parkes connection too, because I thought I was familiar with his work. You made me take a close look at Night and Day again. Sure enough, the stacked triangles and the spiral are there but they're hard to notice with that rather lovely young woman in the way ;-) 

Nice bag too.

OH, Michael Parkes, not Michael Parks (actor, "Then Came Bronson" 1969, drifter on a Harly sportster with the The Eye of Providence, as seen on the back of a dollar bill (US))
