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 🙂

Some new wax work for 2012.  Love creating these imaginary garden wonderlands.The last 2 pieces show a new technique which  involves lighting the whole piece on fire to create a fun web like effect. Always learning!
