Friday Evening Sunset
This past Friday evening, I made it to my little summer place
on Lake Erie. Sitting at my place - the view was awesome.
What is it about sunsets that always brings calmness ...
I have read somewhere that Lake Erie has the most beautiful sunsets in the world. I believe it.
"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.
