FRIDAY THE 13TH YEAHHHHH

Hi Everyone!
Today is Friday the 13th one of my most favorite and lucky days of the year for me. So I am looking forward to seeing what great things happen today.
It is also Paint Party Friday (PPF) Thanks to Eva and Kristin hosting this event every Friday. Today my piece is a bit different, ooohhh I forgot my paintings ARE a bit different. LOL. This one really is. I work a lot with bees wax, making my own natural mixture for my Huichol beading. So why not on canvas. For this piece I used pigmented hot bees wax, pastels, sea shell, and spiked beads. Hope you enjoy it.
For PPF readers please go to my full blog to read other posts and for my regular readers please scroll down.
Have a happy FT13.

  2. Happy Friday the 13th...hope it's a lucky one for you, today. The painting is beautiful...reminds me of a poppy quilt I did a few years back.

    Kudos on the magazine, too - will be snagging a cop of that issue, for sure. Happy weekend, Nicole!
