I find so much joy working with encaustic.  I love the process, the tactile quality and the endless possibilities.  This collection of paintings are driven by the desire to slow down.  I hope that each of these paintings carry with them a sense of calm and peace.  My hand is evident in the surface of the wax.  You will find it's presence in the smoothness of the surface from me scraping it back, in the hand carved lines or the remanence of a brush stroke.  The "Still" collection is special to me and I hope that you find the magic in it too.  I will be slowly introducing images here as I go.

Begun
250.00

"Begun" the place where it starts.  Where you sit and contemplate where it is you've been and where you are going.

Encaustic medium has a very tactile surface.  This piece combines both a smooth surface as well as a textured carved element as well.  The layering of pigment gives a varying effect of color.

Paired

The concept of pairs, partnerships combining two to work together as one.  It's challenging, rewarding and complicated.  The comfort in being a part of something while it makes you a better individual.  "Paired" is a personal painting about being together

The quiet subtle tones echo the feel of a contemplative Sunday morning.  There is an under laying complexity in the texture of the brush strokes.

Beyond

That rare moment when you are able to sit still long enough that your view encourages you to reach beyond your every day thoughts and see a bigger picture.
