Fire and Rain & No Name

 This is a piece I recently finished.  It probably has about ten layers. It started out with watercolor and ink on 8" x 10" claybord.  Then I collaged papers on with wax, added many layers of wax, graphite, pigment paint stick.  At one point I did not like what was happening and scraped back some of the layers. Adding more layers and this is the final piece...I think.

So far 3 layers have been applied. 
Paper, wax, book cover, pigment stick, some of my drawings on tissue paper,and ink

Encaustic Journey 2018

January 14, 2018

I decided to use this platform to help me keep track of my art work and thoughts.  It is a good place for me to check back and see where my journey has taken me.  It is the beginning of the new year and I always have good intentions of keeping up with this blog, but as you may have noticed the last time I posted was March last year. Sheesh.

I started working in Encaustic last June (2017) and fell in love.  This is a photo of my December show at Blue 7 Gallery. It is still up and is part of a group show "Shadow and Light."
