The last instalment of twinchies created for the Mindful Art Studio Inchie Challenge. Twelve days of creating two-inch-square artworks in response to a prompt word.

Any thoughts about maybe slacking off a little this time around were firmly dismissed when I was asked to help out as one of Kathy Racoosin's team of goodwill ambassadors!
