Abstract Paintings

I refer to all of these new works as "Abstracts," even though some contain recognizable images.  They are a departure for me ... totally imaginative, based solely on the manipulation of shapes, color and sometimes images. The medium -- cold wax -- is one I have not used before and opens up multiple possibilities.  The collaged images are created on a gel plate, also new medium for me. 

All are on paper, mounted on wood. They do not need framing; in fact, framing would be inadvisable.
