Where's the Hocus-Pocus-FOCUS medicine?

(52x45)
This will be the third in a series I'm calling "Fiddleheads and Fireflies".
I was working out on the deck way after dark last night and the fireflies were running amok and real lightning was flickering in and out of the cloud cover. Very dramatic, which is what I like. Of course this one is soaking wet and has not been painted yet so it will be lighter, more subtle. All this coming from an interesting and overall successful dyefest yesterday (pictures - the June dates are yesterdays efforts). I wasn't happy with some of the pieces but I didn't just bury them away. Talk about complex cloth. I sure hope lime juice stops the action of cheep-0 dishwashing gel as I ran out of vinegar! I have no less than 8 large (spread your arms wide and go "aaaahhh") pieces in varying stages of construction and planning. I need to stop and focus on one so I can put something in the WIN column.

I love love love it! And how wonderful to read ginger's interpretation of musical people parts. I was thinking of fiddlehead plants and fireflies -- like in my back yard at dusk.
