…and in between all the fun with wax is the fun with my old stand by, acrylic …where it all began… It still teaches me so much which I can then transfer to wax. Happy painting!

Had to stay away from the hot wax last week as it was just toooooo hot. Worked in cold wax to try and cool off 😉 Still sweat quite a bit but the fun was worth it!

Back to working small as I try out new techniques. Learning as I play ~  mixing and mashing the old  with the new.  The hot California summer sun has played a role in all these pieces. Fingers crossed they translate as large as I dream them to be!

Playing around with all the different things that can be done with the wax. Scraping, layering,scraping, glazing, and did I say Scraping? Letting it develop in it’s own way in it’s own time.  Next step…Going BIG 🙂
