Curiosity about the ways the world works permeates my work. Whether it is the way an image is reflected in water, the way an object picks up light, or the way a grandfather stoops to hold his grandson's hand, I am constantly trying to capture the magic of the world around me. Recently I began working in Encaustic, an ancient art medium that melds wax and oil paint. I find it entriguing. It provides the challenge that I enjoy.
These are some of the encaustic pieces that I have created:
Great Blue Heron 10 inches X 10 inches
Encaustic, mixed media
Peonies 12 inches X 9 inches Encaustic
