ENCAUSTIC WAX COLLAGE
SOLD-Thank you Dawn!
This is the third in my encaustic wax collage series. I must say, I think I have finally honed in on the style I want to use in this series. I created “Blooming Spirit” by using some of the flowers from my garden that I had dried a few years ago. I used mostly roses, baby’s breath and some odds and ends. I painted the face with oils and used several different gels and glazes, some acrylics too. I then placed encaustic wax over the flowers to preserve and added gold highlights. She is 11"w x 22" h.
Here is the story I have given her, taken from my book , She Who Whispers.
Her home was far away and she longed for the roots that had for so long held her life together; friends, family and familiar surroundings. Time passed as she quietly endured her sorrow. Finally, she rejoiced, for her soul, who knew far more than she, revealed a great truth: “Change is growth, you must bloom where you are planted.”
I have just placed her on Etsy for you to view there. She can be purchased on etsy or you can contact me directly through my e-mail. I take all credit cards, including, MC, Visa, AExpress and Discover. I also accept checks.
Hope you like her.
