Beeswax Collage and a Poem

This is a collage that I did that is embellished with beeswax. The collage is made up of tissue papers, transparencies, collage images, angelina fibers, and handmade papers on a stretched canvas. The beeswax is applied and smoothed with an iron. Beeswax is a fantastic medium!
I have taught several workshops in this and most people really enjoy working with it. Plus there's a smells good!!

This is something that I plan to use in artwork soon and will share as my ending quote. I love the rhythm of it and the images it evokes. I'm off to a weekend of art and poetry writing this weekend!
"Nothing that is can pause or stay;
The moon will wax, the moon will wane,
The mist and cloud will turn to rain,
The rain to mist and cloud again,
Tomorrow be today." Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
