30 in 30 - Day 21

Hey Friends,  This is an unusual item for me.  I've only done a few of these cold wax paintings.  It takes months to dry and that's the reason.

This is started with a base of genuine silver leaf on a 4" sq. ampersand cradled panel.  Then the cold wax is mixed with the oils and applied with a knife.  I then used a rubber shelf liner to impress the pattern in the wax.  The area for the Water Lily is smoothed out and when dry (months later) I painted the Water Lily !

Would make a sweet and unusual gift for the gardener in your life.

Check it out HERE in my ETSY shop.

Happy Trails
