"Lost and Found" ( encaustic)

This encaustic sold at our show last week at the Grainery gallery in Rocky Mount. It is 24x36", abstract encaustic on a wood panel. I am hoping to stir the interest in encaustic paintings through showing my pieces. They are all so different and beautiful as well as long lasting. When I want more shine, I buff my encaustics with panty hose to refresh them. This one was fun to create.

The Potter (collage)

I got this idea from a pottery show we participated in with the Blue Ridge Pottery Guild a while ago. A fellow potter came in dressed in her "Eastern" outfit to sell her somewhat oriental pottery at her assigned booth. Her attitude is very calm and "Zen like" which I wanted to capture in this painting. I don't usually collage but do think this background worked well with my painted figure. She loved it and bought it on the spot.

"Rhythm" ( encaustic)

This encaustic painting was done on a panel of wood 24X36" large.  It is one of my largest and favorite encaustics so far. I am not sure it is finished yet but the good thing about wax is that it is easily reworked. It is priced at $525.
