Featured in Collage with Traditional Mediums November 2011

This is an encaustic mixed media collage using various quotes on the importance of having dreams and sticking to your beliefs. The main quote in this piece is the poem we recite at the end of each grief therapy session:
“God grant me the SERENITY to accept the things I cannot change, the COURAGE to change the things I can, and the WISDOM to know the difference.”

If you can believe this, my son (unbeknownst to me) had this entire poem tattooed on his arm! I found out during a parent-teacher conference during his senior year of high school. Although he hid it from me initially, he told his teacher he was sure I’d get over being upset about it because it had to do with GOD. Gotta love our kids, don’t we?

It was made using my drawings and paintings, various metal embellishments, stamped quotes, beeswax, oil paint, and pigmented wax.

I’m an abstract-expressionist painter… a mixed media, encaustic, collage artist who uses a non-objective, emotive style of creative expression and visual messaging. I create to survive, to LIVE with more JOY and less pain. ART (plus faith in God) is what sustains me.

    This artwork touches me so deeply. I don’t know why. It just has something, I am sure you put some secret ingredient in the wax, like tears, or laughs, to pigment it.

  • Thank you, Ina! You’re exactly right… so much of me poured into this piece as I created it… this is a special piece; I am happy to know you like it as well! :-)
