"Subterranean", 2009, encaustic mixed media on panel,

I just finished this itsy-bitsy piece the other day. It is for a project directed by  Saije Bashaw, at The Creative Gym 5.  The idea is to create an art work inspired by a word or words, and taking between 1-8 hours to complete the project. Very simple, very fun. The words this time around were “hidden” and “change”.  This little piece took me a few hours, and got me to do some visual problem solving, and felt refreshingly different from other recent work I’ve made. The deadline isn’t for a while, so I haven’t seen other’s work yet, but I’m looking forward to it. 

I’ve also been working on more “White Series” paintings…

      The white dots are created with a tiny brush, encaustic paint, and patience. The black dots are created with an awl or other pointy object, and filled with oil paint or encaustic paint. It takes a long time, but I think it is worth it for the openness that it provides.
