At the Harvard University Harvard Art Museums Forbes Pigment Collection, many of the world’s rarest hues are preserved. Just don’t ask Narayan Khandekar, director of the Straus Center for Conservation and Technical Studies, what his favorite color is.
The materials collection, at the Harvard Art Museums in Cambridge, MA, houses thousands of pigments, including some of the world’s rarest. Dragon’s blood, mummy, Indian yellow: these are but a few flashy highlights from the museum’s collection
Edward Forbes began what is known as the Forbes Pigment Collection after acquiring a decayed Renaissance painting in 1899, embarking on a path that shaped art conservation in America. Read about the legacy of the Harvard Art Museums pigment collection via Artnet news: http://hvrd.me/MkIf300QWc8

Here are a few of the images they used.
If you have played Metal Gear Solid III you know her name is not Eve, but you never get her actual name. This painting was done based on the Abstract art in the manual that comes with the game not the actual character. My husband has played through this game to get every badge and recommended this pair of paintings. This is a stretched canvas, oil painting.
Eve is on Etsy here.
The other is of Snake:

This week was a bit scattered due to family tragedy but I did publish a book I had been working on. I am more pleased with this one and because of it will be releasing a second edition of the first that is expanded and possibly has illustrations. This one is based on my educational and work career as well as my life and experience and how it can help others in their homes and lives. The illustrations are drawn by me and the front image is by me of a box I made, for sell on my Etsy site (ArtsFolly).
Most of my other projects have slowed or were on hold until we get through the issues. Though I did gather supplies and create some new design ideas.
My plan for my next jewelry pieces is still mini paintings but I have glass, copper and wood instead of canvas.
Well, that is my brief for this week, hope everyone here is well.
