Hello Art Enthusiasts!

This month, you will find my encaustic work leaning more towards the contemporary with minimal details and more expressive brushwork and texture. I’m focusing on how color and composition create an emotional response in the viewer rather than imitating nature.

“Between Us,” was created using the Old Master’s palette of ultramarine blue, burnt sienna, and yellow ochre to give a restful feeling to this lovely scene of the Potomac as it separates Virginia and Maryland at Brunswick, MD. There are multiple layers of clear encaustic over the water area creating dramatic texture to give the impression of rippling water. The texture is mirrored slightly in the sky to give a cohesiveness to the work. An underpainting of rich golden yellow gives a beautiful luminosity to the foliage.

“Discovery” is an abstract painting full of rich color and dreamy imagery. The initial painting is an encaustic monotype created by placing rice paper on the hot palette laden with paint. I fused the paper onto a cradled wood panel and extended the image on all sides of the panel. I added a punch of color with a palette knife of water-soluble encaustic paint and oil stick to create a strong focal point to this piece.

“Climb” was created in a vibrant full spectrum palette to suggest the energy and joy of youth. It’s reminiscent of climbing and jumping from boulder to boulder as a child at a favorite local park. The inspiration is the Bear’s Den Overlook on the Appalachian Trail in northern Virginia.

“Lavender Night” is a nocturne piece created with a palette of luscious blues and purples to depict a river scene at night. This analogous palette evokes a feeling of calm and tranquility. Dramatic texture is added to the water area to depict the rippling water as it sparkles in the moonlight. This little painting is unframed and will fit most standard 5″x7″ frames.

“Rest Stop”  was created in a split-primary palette to evoke a sense of rest and relaxation. After a busy day of hiking in Maryland, this serene spot was a welcoming sight for us weary weekend warriors. This little painting is unframed, and the image extends on the 1/2 inch sides of the cradled wood panel.
