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.
