New Encaustic Paintings...

I have been having too much fun in the studio. I love to spend the summer exploring the rocky coast of Maine. This year Oyster and Mussel Shells have caught my attention.
I have been studying (since early June) these shells and their nuances of color, texture and all of the sea schmootz that hangs onto the outside of these very interesting shells. The colors are surreal, for real. That was the best part!
Texture, hot bees wax+damar resin(220 degrees) and brilliant pigmented colors come together to create a visual feast and for me a longing of those languid summer days at Hermit Island. mmmmmm.
