Oh my Jane...I just adore your beeswax works! I cannot even find words anymore...they are so far beyond any I could choose. All I can say is that this takes my breath away! So very pure and enchanting. Intoxicating beauty! v/f

Jane Small replied:

Jacqueline,you are SO nice and I love reading your words which inspire me no end!!! Thank you!

The color palette and reflections feel just like a dream in the moonlight! fv :)

Jane Small replied:

That is so exactly how I would wish this painting to be "seen." Thank you very much Darlene!

Had to come visit another of your incredible beeswax paintings Jane. I could spend the rest of the evening just gazing into this painting, dreaming of exploring such a glorious world. Especially love the colors in this one, and that little mandarin duck is so cool! Truly amazing, enchanting work of art!! F/V

Jane Small replied:

That is so lovely .Makes me look into this painting again.Thank you very much Bill!

Beautiful Jane! Such a pure, enlightened essence in your scene, with incredible light and colours, so vivid yet so peaceful. a warm and glowing work! Wonderful! FL

Jane Small replied:

Thank you so much for finding my little mandarin duck Nikki!

Jane, This painting is gorgeous with such beautiful colors, textures and amazing use of light. It leaves me with a feeling of enchantment and peace..simply incredible, my friend. v/f

Jane Small replied:

Deb,Thanks so much for your delightful comment on "Mandarin Dream."So appreciated.

Your work is always so beautiful Jane! Awesome colors and detail...f/t/v50

Jane Small replied:

Donna,thank you very much for all the support and nice comments.

As always Jane,..wonderfully mystic and paradise-like painting. This time the viewer is much closer to the scene, I would suggest,..right irn the middle of the scene,..otherwise she/he cannot recognize the bird, you dont mind, if I call him conveniently chinese duck, in all its glory and beauty.. The colours are dreamlike, but the most stunning topic in my eyes is the wonderfully relief-like surface of the sea.. I am no insider in far eastern cultures,..but once again longing for inner freedom, peace and transcendence are to be feeled. Only the duck seems to be looking for a female congener... Almo

Jane Small replied:

Almo,you will be relieved to know that Mrs.Mandarin is floating happily across the lake towards her Chinese mate in the glowing twilight. (just out of view!) So all is well in "Duck Heaven". Thanks so much for great comment!

Beautiful and unusual, Jane, with the beeswax! Love the colors, too. V/F

Jane Small replied:

Thank you Phyllis!

We were yesterday into a park here in Bucharest for a walk and on the lake were some mandarin ducks and instantly remembered this gorgeous painting of yours, Jane. That's why I needed to see it again in this morning. What a marvel this work is ! f,v

Jane Small replied:

How nice that you can view these ducks in the park Ana! They appear to me as if they have been designed and painted with a Cosmic brush ! Almost "unreal" as if from paradise realms! Thank you so much for your visit!

I think this is a surreal painting very beautiful. Please, could you submit this work in my group "Abstract and surreal art"? V/F/FB

Jane Small replied:

Thank you very much Ramon.I did that but forgot to thank you here as well!

A heavenly beautiful and dreamlike painting, Jane. I just love your use of blue and soft purple shades in this work to create such a marvelously peaceful atmosphere. I admire so much what you succeed to to express in this medium. f,v

Jane Small replied:

I always "see" these beeswax paintings as if they were "new" after one of your visits Ana! So delighted you like this.Thank you lots!

David, thankyou so much for all your comments. I'm so happy you are drawn to these beeswax paintings. I was equally impressed by your beautiful photos this morning.
