On The Land
13"x13" mixed media encaustic on wood panel framed with 2.5" deep natural maple frame
There was something about all the major shifts happening in the world in recent times that pushed me to dig deeper into myself to get in contact with the truest essence of what inspires me to create. It felt important to keep showing up despite the swirling energies of fear and doubt and to distill the sources of peace, truth, and beauty that shape my days.
I wanted to get back to my early days of creating with encaustic when I made my own paints using powdered pigments, beeswax, and damar resin so I gathered up my supplies and made a batch of paints especially for this series.
This painting started with two pencil drawings I made in Cape May at a bird observatory. One of a Blue Heron and another small sketch of the surrounding landscape. There are many layers of colored wax, handmade and vintage papers, crocheted lace, gold and copper leaf all combined to create a harmonious ode to the land.
Comes ready to hang for years of enjoyment!
