I developed this site to provide myself with an online space to organize images that inspire my art and to show finished artwork. I think of it as an online art journal. Most of the photos that I take are really captured for future drawing or painting. I have found that encaustic and mixed media is presenting options and inspiration that mix both drawing, painting and photography. Work presented here will be a combination of work in progress and finished pieces.
This piece shows a photo I took of a little starling sitting at our bird feeder (manipulated in photoshop), sitting on the background is a photo I took of a rock surface in Acadia National park, with a dried leaf from my yard. The final piece was all puled together with encaustic.
The final piece was actually a vertical composition, and one of the my first encaustic attempts. It didn’t really turn out as well as I had hoped! But, I still really love the colors and the feel of the piece. I was glad that I took some before photos!
