Scattered - but productive

It's been a scattered week... best laid plans and all that. Dealing with some changes that are disrupting my usual flow has been challenging. Although I did have a quiet day today, and completed a couple of small pieces for my Etsy shop. Both are mixed media collages using beeswax to meld it all together. I just love beeswax!




The large (for me) canvas I started last week is still looking at me, wondering what else will appear. I have a couple of ideas and haven't yet figured out how to execute them.


I started an 8x10 canvas board in the same style... papers, brayered paint and this one has stenciling.


And here they both sit in the studio... ideas percolating as I see them each time I come into the room. 



Because it's that time of the week, I'm sharing with Paint Party Friday, hosted by the fabulous Eva and Kristin! I hope you have time to check out some of the other PPF artists! They always inspire me!
