Religious Icons Part 2

Work on "Allah" has been progressing nicely. Thank you to Dr. AlQaisi for helping me with the placement and making certain it says what it should say. I am filling in the background at this time with a soft blue and tiny pearls. My next piece is going to be "Ohm" - Dr. Sunil Rao is helping me with this one. I would like rich, vibrant colours in this piece - like the colours I have seen in saris worn at events over the years. Rich reds and golds, I believe.

Looks like I have to place another order with Charlene Booth for more seed beads!

Both doctors are Chief Medical Residents where I work. The other two Chief Medical residents in the program are Drs. Cristina Segovia-Ramachandran and Joao Cavalcante. All have finished medical school and their internal medicine residency. They have passed their board certification exams and will be starting a Cardiology fellowship in July 2007. I am very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with them. Cristina is originally from Peru, Fadi from Jordan, Joao from Brasil and Sunil was raised in India.

Along with the Mayan God

Simple shadow box frame. Beadwork held in place with velcro strips and can be easily removed if necessary. This piece is my husband's favorite one so it's on the wall in the dining room where he can see it from his "man-chair" (recliner of monster proportions).

The Mooses have been Framed

The Mooses have been framed in simple shadow boxes and hung on the living room wall.
