It's been a week!! After many bad painting days (well not really bad, just not any good work) I finally hit a streak and turned out several new pieces. I thought I would share with you something I've been adding to some of the new work and that is text on the surface. There is usually text under the surface but it has to make sense to me to keep it on the top surface. The cold wax allows me to carve back in days and weeks later - I love that option. Although it is not completely legible, it is pertinent to the painting in my eyes. This is really fun and very zen like to sit and carve my stories.
The painting below I've reworked for over two months. You have seen some of the earlier incarnations but this is the final.
