Wax at Art Fest

These 3 paintings were created in Judy Wise's informative class that taught us everything we ever wanted to know about wax.  I haven't done any at home but plan to coat lots of art with wax and resin this summer.  I especially liked transferring images (such as the birds) into the warm wax - it was magic!

Art Fest Creations

OK so here are all my creations from Art Fest this past April.  It was truly an amazing experience and I hope to go again.  The two women were done in Misty Mawn's encouraging class.  My two animal portraits were mythological characters in Karen O'Brien's "Myth and Mystery"- I gave my poor corgi lion legs and a tail because she is height deprived and can't wave her stub of a tail in the breeze.  Matteo the cat has a human hand to catch birds - he can only dream.
