Bees wax painting! Feedback please

I have been working on this 12"x12" canvas for almost a year. I do something then put it away. I got some new "Pan Pastels" and decided to do some layering over the bees wax.
What do you think?

I think that it's totally gorgeous. I love vibrant colors and strong images and you nailed it. There is such grace and movement to this piece. Awesome!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and checking out my Day of the Dead tags. Very sweet of you :-)

Peggy, this is one of my very favorites of all your work. I wish I knew what you layered over beeswax. Acrylics? colored wax? Is this a picture that you covered with wax? Whatever it is, it is simply amazing. Frame it and hang it on the wall. Gorgeous.

Fabulous! I love pan pastels but I haven't bought any only played in workshops. I must downsize my addicitions.

Peggy,
I have no idea how you did this, but it's so beautiful. It's a piece I wwould hang in a place where I could see it often It's a real mood elevator.

Peggy this is a real goodie. I love the expressionistic use of colour but then I just love colour. Thankyou.

Oh Peggy,
This is simply breathtaking...I wouldn't want to part with it!!! Gorgeous colors and they are so vibrant that it appears that one can reach out and pick one of the flowers!

I really came on just to tell you that I'm thinking about you and hope you are doing great!!!
Hugs,
Cindy
