But a short while ago as I came up out of my computer fog I realized I no longer smelled the bread baking. AHA! My brain engaged and led me to the kitchen where sure enough two huge crusty loaves of still warm bread sat perched on the counter. I grabbed the butter and a knife and sat here in heaven after devouring two pieces. And I thought, now this is true goodness.
Both these pieces are done 12x12 canvas with lots of layers and texture going on in the backgrounds that the camera may not have caught very well.
I wanted to play with beeswax when I started these the end of this summer.
I call this one Night in Paris. At first it had been my intention to use beeswax over the background but I liked the color as it turned out and knew that beeswax would change it so I decided to be satisfied with just the bodice finished in beeswax.
This one is self titled Trust Your Dream. Again I wanted to do the whole thing in beeswax as a finish but once more loved the color happening in the background and didn't want it to change. So the little girl and the box she is standing on & the ticket are the only elements with beeswax on them. Hard to tell in a photo but the heart and the star have been flocked.
