encaustic


I love texture and
i love this color
every once in a while I use it
not sure why its not something I have on my hot plate all the time
it must be a mood thing
I will have to pay more attention

encaustic

"little one"
16x24
on wood panel
one thing I love to do is photographing the horses at my friends farm
this is the first time I've done a transfer of this size
surprisingly it wasn't that difficult , just time consuming
 left "grazing" and right "two sisters"

encaustic moon

another in the cosmic series
layers of clear wax, drips and splatters
lots of rubbing with oil paints and pastels
fusing it all together

encaustic and the cosmos

 inspired by my friend ron benison
working a lot with oil pastels and the heat gun
I had fun playing and seeing what could happen
and the next thing I knew
a series of painting looking a bit like the cosmos

japanese porcelain and soutache set


another challenge from my friend carmi
using vintage porcelain beads and cabochons from john bead 
its been awhile since creating something with soutache cord by dazzle it
it took a while to get back into the rhythm
once i did , i really enjoyed letting the cord help create the design
