Ink and beeswax paintings have a life of their own. Working without brushes, using my hand-dipped beeswax candles and resources around me, I scoot & scatter, drip & dribble, scrape and shake the inks onto hard Bristol board.

Candles were in the paint box when traveling and as I put down brushes to use candles, sticks, porcupine quills, rocks, grass, moss, etc., those "tools" became yet another connection between the finished art and my life -- and a new challenge every painting!

By the time these paintings are framed they are waxed, painted, scraped free of excess beeswax and ironed onto a mat board.
