11th hour change

landscape 2 sm landscape sm

Last week I was looking at two small canvasses recently painted with red earth and blue sky and decided to cut them free of their stretchers, adhere them to boards I’d prepared for encaustic and applied a few layers of wax. Seeing the painting through the wax was not unlike looking out onto the landscape through heat haze and I liked the texture. After adding some Japanese tissue paper, fabric, some incising, their names, ‘Early Moon’ and ‘Coy Moon’, jumped out at me for a change. These latecomers will now be part of our wbhd show!

  1. Susan, these are two very special works. To my way of thinking, they represent a turning point for you and your art practice. The encaustic methodology you have embraced is the perfect vehicle to take you forward. These two pieces are fabulous! c x

  2. What Christine said. =] I love the translucent ‘film’ encaustic adds to paintings.
