Making art is always a process of discovery. Lately I have rediscovered how richly sensual is the process of painting, and especially atop an encaustic (wax) layer. And, it's not just fun to create them, but fun to view them in person.
Because each of these works is a build of digital print, multiple layers of wax, and then finished with detailed oil painting, the depth that shines through is surprising.
All are based on images that are my own original digital images.
The top piece is Chasing Birthdays (12" x 12" on a cradled ground). The middle one is from Summertime (also 12" x 12" on a cradled ground). And the last, perhaps the most simple, but sweet to my eye, is Lil Sleeping Buddha. Can't remember his size because now he snoozes in New Zealand. zzzzzzzzzzzz
I'm already in the process of making new ones.
