Becoming a woman is really a life long journey… it doesn’t end until you do!

This encaustic mixed media collage (9″ × 12″) was made using painted papers, alcohol inks, acrylic, mica, glitter, sand, gouache and metal. There are layers of different papers used in this collage; the corners were made using alcohol ink, the center was done using a variety of media on 4″ × 6″ watercolor card stock, and the background is watercolor and acrylic medium weight paper. The final piece was glazed with beeswax.

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.

    Hah! How TRUE! I’m really drawn to this one, Angela. Perhaps it is because of the watercolor effects in so much of it…though it could be acrylic; anyway…. . I really like the center piece: words & colors.

  • Ink! Gotta love that stuff! Thanks much, my friend! :)
