Ha ha ha. I promise not to torture you with any more of these for awhile but had to show the one I did yesterday. This is 12x20" and used a lot of wax, a lot of scraping and a lot of course changes. The surface is wonderful in person but impossible to capture on 'film'. I alternated opaque and transparent wax so that you are looking into the wax in some places (like looking into a tidepool) and stopping on the surface where the wax is opaque. That interests me.
So I'm off to pack and do a few last minute chores. Please send up a silent prayer for a friend of mine who is having a hip replacement today. He has struggled gallantly with MS for a decade and is one of the kindest people I know. And while you're at it, send up a prayer for everyone who is frightened, hungry or alone. Let's look around and help each other out. We can transform the world into a kinder place if we choose to.
