I am mesmerized by the wax - like a drunken sailor, helpless before the call of the sirens. The melty, fragrant, challenging medium has me for sure. Right before Christmas. This is why you won't be getting a card from me. I'm off waxing.
She kind of looks the way I feel. Aye, aye, aye, Christmas again and me with my head in the wrong place, off chasing fireflies and phosphorescent waves. No plum pudding for this family.
This painting is on a deep stretcher with wood panel on top and it is 12" square. I glued Italian writing around the edges; walnut stained.
What a fun day it was. It's sure a good thing there are no holidays coming or I would be feeling guilty about spending so much time in the studio. (ha ha - NOT). xo
