I've been working on a bunch of little beeswax collages the past couple days. They're really fun...partly because they're quick to finish and I think partly because they're small and to the point. Beeswax is one of my very favorite mediums...the smell of it heating...the brushing on with a paintbrush... smoothing it with an iron...and buffing with a soft cloth for a shine. The small ones I've been doing are from 2 3/4" square to 4" square. When I was in the Artist Co-Op I sold a bunch of these on little wooden easels. I'll share a few with you today and more another day.
These 3 are all 2 3/4" square.
"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
