More waxing

I bought a little FLIP Ultra video cam last week. I don't really have a clue how to work it yet. The first video I made I turned it sideways to get in more field of vision but then had the devil of a time figuring out in a program how to turn it vertical again. Finally, I figured it was just taking too much time for now learning how to cut and edit so much of it for YouTube. So you can't see the first part of the demo of working on the paintings I showed you in the previous post. SO, I made two little short ones from another angle and left as much of ME out of it as I could. I have no idea who that old fat woman is in the video. (smile) Anyway, it was hot in my studio kitchen...good place for hot wax, huh! I'm also uploading the two 12 x 12" panels that I'm titling They Paved Paradise 1 & 2 since I got some of my inspiration from that old song, Big Yellow Taxi by Joni Mitchell.


  1. Cheryl wish I could see the video and see these in person really. What a gorgeous surface. the honeycomb is inviting. keep posting!

  2. Oh Cheryl! Don't get me started! And I mean, really! Can almost smell the aroma, think of reaching for a favorite tool, remembering my own wax studio set-up (in NOLA) and wondering what I would do next if I DID set up a wax dedicated space (have tried it here before but the energy does't stick.)

    Suzanne, for some reason the links aren't hot... have to be copied and pasted to view. Worth it!

    Cheryl... raise your table before your back screams for mercy!

  3. Suze...she's right. I tried embedding but it didn't work this time.
    Karen, I know for sure about the back. It didn't bother me with these two but when working on the larger ones, it really did. THEN i put up a wooden table easel used for watercolor boards and that helped a lot. These little ones don't fit on it without something under them.

    I'll be back to my acrylics soon in this heat until autumn hits.

    I made 15 cakes of medium yesterday, too...of the amber color for dark colors.
