Butterfly in Beeswax

This is my first canvas that I totally used beeswax as the adhesive and covered it all with beeswax.
There is a great video over at Stampington, under How to Videos, that illustrates this technique. I just loved it and plan to do more of the same. I have been using a little bit of beeswax in my work, but not this much. I am very drawn to encaustic, so this is my dabbling in that medium.

New Shrine Canvas!

I have been busily creating canvases for my show, the weekend of Nov 20-21.  I will be selling my new mixed media canvases. They are all pictured on the Flickr Photostream link, here on my blog.
I really like this new creation. I have been thinking about using some shrines in my work and using cardboard also. So I combined the two, and will make a few more.
Here is my latest creation:  The picture of the woman in the shrine is a copy of a photograph I took years ago of a statue in the Glasgow Botanical Gardens. It still remains one of my favorite photographs.
