8 by 10 inch encaustic wax, mixed media. I took photos of a birdcage porject that I made and altered it in photoshop, aged the edges and embedded the photo into this painting. 'Spring awaits' shows a rusted cage(winter) as winter releases its grip slowly and spring waits to emerge.
Art has helped me keep my balance and sanity through many years(30+) as an ICU Nurse, helped me enrich my life doing art projects with my children, and helped me connect with tons of wonderful people when teaching/sharing my skills with local volunteer groups I took my first 'formal' art classes in High School and managed to squeeze in a couple while I was in college getting my Nursing Degree. Ever since then its been an acrylic class here, a watercolor class there, a handmade rug class, mixed media, colored pencils, clay, beading and most recently zentangle and encaustic wax. As a relatively new 'empty-nester' I am enjoying more time at the 'studio' and still taking classes whenever the budget, life and a continuing Nursing Career allows me too. Thanks for stopping by!!
