Our vacation interrupted my rhythm of painting and shooting pictures, and blogging…so here it is late September, and I have finally gotten the paintings I finished before vacation shot, and am just now getting them posted.
This one is a fairly fanciful voyage into creating a third piece to fit in between two of my other recent pieces to create a triptych.
Here’s a small mockup of the triptych:
This piece is a sort of fractal enlargement of a section of my “Behind the Wall” piece; this is called “Grandma was a Stromatolite:”
I seemed to need to do a landscape; this one is called “Field of Artists’ Dreams” and combines fresh encaustic with pretty little patches of paint – little mini-paintings.
This started out as my first Cel Animata painting, and after much work, turned into another painting; but I wasn’t satisfied yet, so today, I scraped the whole thing down and started over; after months and months of work and 1/8″ worth of wax later, I finally like it!
This is the first encaustic I’ve painted directly onto the plywood panel, with no intermediary watercolor paper. There is so much visual depth to this that cannot be seen on a computer monitor!
Brand new abstraction. This feels like a new direction for me. I gotta say, I like it!
