"End of Summer I", 18" x 24" encaustic painting completed earlier this week
After painting the first seascape I thought it would be impressive if I created a second piece that could work as a diptych as well as on it's own. Either way I place the paintings together (see below), the colors are slightly off and although the flow of the waves does work, there is a warm serenity in one painting, and cold turbulence in the other. I decided to put each of these in a simple black floater frame and when I am setting up the entire body of Water Life paintings at the show I can then decide the best display.
It's hard to believe school will be back in session several weeks from now and the easy days of summer will come to an end. I feel depleted from the many hours spent working on these two paintings. I plan on resting for the next few days, and will wait to see where my creative juices take me next.
