This day has been totally out of my control.  An early morning phone call had me pulling supplies together to watch a grandchild with the stomach flu.  Taking all over to my daughter's, I worked when I could, with plenty of time for allowing layers to dry.  These coneflowers were painted first, then painted with hot wax as a resist.  Background colors were floated in, with a final coat of wax. After wrinkling up into a ball, brown was floated into the cracks, thus the batik effect.   Ironing between layers of paper finished off this 929th painting in as many days.
