more house....

still going with the house image but creating out of wood and nailing it to a wooden base. A couple years ago I used beeswax quite a bit in my work...i wanted to get back to that so this piece is a mixed media piece, layered with paper, paint and a final coat of beeswax....which is also great to go back into and draw, and re-melt....the texture and patina are quite fabulous. I used metal measuring tape to frame up the piece...and gel mediumed 3 vintage blocks on top. i just can't get away from vintage toys, game pieces etc....and really why would i? when the stash grows low luckily it's yard sale and flea market time!...the thrill of the hunt....
