encaustic

happy accidents!
some days I start out with a great idea
I can see it in my head, sometimes I dream about painting
then when it comes to getting it onto the canvas it can go wrong
for some reason I was having a hard time
I just wasn't "feeling it"
after several breaks and almost giving up
I decided to give it one more chance
after layering and scraping
ironing and adding more color
more scraping and ironing
I finally liked what I was seeing
so I added a photo transfer
and after six hours of pure frustration
a beautiful painting
lesson learned
never give up
but more importantly
patience!!!!

Lovely Nancy... you are so right, just when it is about to all go wrong, is just when it can all go perfectly 'right'. I love it.
