Dream Pockets

Dream Pockets are meant to hold a wish or a dream near and dear to you whether written on a piece of paper or invested in a charm or a coin. No two hand-painted 2" x 3" are exactly the same although each is decorated with a loteria image, button, glitter, stamping, and fabric scraps. These elements combined create a cocoon of spiritual energy for your heart's desire!
Dream Pockets are now available at my Etsy store; the link is on the right.

From Stone To Wax

Statuary I
Came across these wonderful "faces" in a picture book of gargoyles and grotesques; these stone carvings likely decorated a building's exterior. Now they've found a new life in encaustic paintings. To me they're not only expressive but exotic. Regrettably we don't have such architectural ornamentation around here. Would daily life feel more dramatic if we had these things hanging around our environment? In the meanwhile a 6" x 6" portrait could give us pause for thought..
