I've been working on some very small paintings (10 cm x 10 cm) on paper. They're oil and cold wax with collage elements: fragments of antique letters, gold leaf, pressed flowers.

As I was working, I rather lost sight of what was happening with the individual pieces. Paint and pigments spilled over the edges of the tape creating a rather alarming visual mess.
When I took off the tape off, however, I was pleased with the results. Then I used more cold wax to adhere the collage elements.
I finished two of them today. The rest are for the weekend.
