KDB ART Books...

So for all of you who are fans of kdb-art, I have several books available online. You can click this link,  KDB-ART Books and order the book of Art or Photography that interests you.
I have several books of Encaustic Painting mixed with a bit of paint on canvas.

The first is "The Natural World of KDB ART"
this small gem is filled with work created in the late winter through late spring of 2011. You will find, Birds, Bugs, Ferns, Nests, Shells & a few winter Birch with Crows and Cardinals.
Next, "Under The Sea" is a collection of mostly Encaustic pieces inspired by the sea, Hamachi & Blue Fin Tuna, Octopus, Clam Shells, Mussel Shells, Lobsters and Kelp floating in the ocean currents.

The following two books are both Photography.
"Birds of Marco Island and the Gulf of Mexico" is filled with images of these graceful creatures who grace the coastline. They inhabit the many Barrier and Mangrove Islands of this ecologically delicate region of the world.

"Summer Nature. . . .  M a i n e" is chocked full of images that reflect my deep love for warm months and all things living or displayed mostly in our garden, in Topsham Maine.
Take a look, you will not be disappointed. To order click the link, KDB-ART Books.

kdb-ART Walk...

I have been very busy creating 4 separate collections of Encaustic Paintings, for 4 different venues. You can take the kdb Artwalk, in mid-coast Maine. It would be fun to start at The Brunswick Inn
165 Park Row, Brunswick, Maine.

In the main Entry you will find a small collection of 6x6 etched Encaustic panels on cradled birchboard. This small collection features, Lobsters, a Toad, Ferns and a Beetle. Take a moment to stroll through the lovely gardens on your way to the Carriage House where you will find a major hanging, " Maine Nature 2011" mostly Encaustic with a few Paintings. This collection features Nests, some Abstract water and a few Goldfish.
You can then stroll down to
Little Tokyo Sushi Restaurant
72 Maine St. , Brunswick, Maine

"Under The Sea" is the name of this collection. This is mostly Encaustic on board, featuring Hamachi and Blue Fin Tuna, Octopus, Clam Shells, Mussel Shells and a few Encaustic, engraved style, Lobsters. I also have some oversized canvases of Kelp floating, Sea Grass and Kelp at the Bottom of the Sea. The inspiration was the Little Tokyo menu.
After a lovely lunch you can walk up to the top of the block and pop into the delightful Home and Garden Store,
Blessings 11 Mason St., Brunswick, Maine.

This cool shop caries Antique, Vintage and New Furnishings for your Home, Cottage and Garden. The collection of kdb Art includes, Crows, Nests, Eggs and Birds. Mostly Encaustic with a few paintings.
Now you will need to hop into your car for a quick jaunt north to Bath, only about 15 minutes.
