Encaustic, collage and sewing on linen 34" x 34" This theme has been prevalent in my life for the last year, as my children grow up. The photo of my hands letting go into the unknown was the starting point. Rippling out from the whirlpool are the images and words that expand on this theme. There are many layers of sewing, collage and paint in this area. Thorns are imbedded in the wax and also sewn in - creating soft arcing circles, and then piercing that softness with a sharp inquiry.
