completed work

"Spring Pathway", 20 x 16 encaustic image transfer

I was able to tone down the chaos in the foreground by adding another layer of wax medium and feel good about the results however photographing without causing glare is my ongoing challenge. I only have 2 more pieces to complete for the spring season of work in the series, then I will have to decide what I will use when it's time for a gallery show (and I am still looking for a venue) based on how much space I will have.

A year of photographing and visiting the bird sanctuary and the cycle continues, seasons change, and so does my art... when I posted this last piece I felt the need to include a poem by Robert Frost:

"Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveller, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference"


  1. You made great decisions on this and have a lovely work of art to show for it. Nice job.


  2. Nice work Robin. I love the combination of dark and light tree trunks. This looks like a hike I'd like to take! Thanks for including the poem

  3. Thanks for your positive feedback, Don and Deborah! It's so interesting to me to see what directions our creative paths lead us toward. In a way, we all are intertwined... Don, with your 3-dimensional works, and Deborah with your waxed silk work, pretty cool if you ask me! So different but so alike.
