Footprints

I put together a short 1 minute slideshow of my recent process, all inspired by Aboriginal art and a humbling view of the world. This discovery has been exhilarating, allowing me to explore new textures, patterns, and dimensionality. 

A birds eye view

"Footprints", 12" x 12" encaustic on panel, the newest addition to the Outback Series


I am looking forward to adding additional works to the slideshow as they are completed.

  2. Yes Sherry, the removal of the wax is can be a work of art too, some artists create sculptures with their scrapings or incorporate the scrapings back into the primary work. Possibilities are endless.

    1. Thanks, Eva. It's fun documenting the process and putting it together as a slideshow. One day I will make an actual video of the process but in the meantime, this is the next best thing.

  6. Deborah, I am loving the palette too, earth tones inspired by the Australian desert and lands and a better understanding of abstracted landscapes.
