Relic II

13"x13" mixed media encaustic on wood panel with 2.5" deep natural maple floater 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. 


This painting was inspired by a visit to a botanical garden. There was a display of cultivated bonsai trees from the early 1900's and I found them so enchanting. I wanted to depict how they might look growing in an imagined landscape.  A delicate pencil drawn swallow compliments the organic bare branches of the tree.  Handmade textured papers, collaged bits from an antique greeting card, and carved gold leaf stars round out this magical little scene.


Come ready to hang for years of enjoyment!
