"May all things move and be moved in me
and know and be known in me
May all creation
dance for joy within me.
This morning was so cool, so refreshing - I just walked around my lawn and captured the beauty
of the morning. This is the cupid fountain, herbs, and flowers,
and lanterns outside my studio. I am going through the pink door soon
to create in my studio.
I wish each of you a beautiful and creative day.
"THE MERMAID'S SONG"
Today I am sharing photos of a couple of new pieces
of my art which I am taking to the framers on Tuesday.
"The Mermaid's Song" incorporates found papers, & objects
and layered with silk paints - creating a design and
letting it dry and then layering. again.
The media is done on rice paper.
"Music For Zeus" was created using a couple of
different techniques -
Tea stained cold press water color papers,
dropping and rubbing copper powder,
drops of metalic gold, silk paints,
and encaustic - a very old technique using
bees wax and resin.
A large part of my current work is created
Actually, in October of this year
I will be giving a speaking presentation for The Bee
Association which will trace the history of encaustic art
and the techniques used by
well known artists such as Piccaso and Jasper Johns.
I will include the methods, tools, etc that I use
in creating my own encaustic art.
