In the past, I have focused a lot on the texture, the malleability, the tactile nature of beeswax by carving and scraping and building pieces with contour and shape. When making this piece, I really wanted to concentrate on the translucency of the wax. I wanted this one to truly be a painting.

(untitled, unfinished)

I also wanted this painting to be pretty free. I tend to employ techniques that rein in and control the natural movement and flow of beeswax. My style is fairly graphic, geometrical, and I really wanted to push past that in this piece.

I think I achieved all of that, but now…I’m bored. It needs something else. This one isn’t finished yet! Stay tuned to see what I add or change. I have a plan for this one.
