My inspiration started earlier this time around. I left Friday evening with an idea from such conversations and went home to research the encaustic world further. With the whirl of the weekend, and then work, I had to put my play time in the studio on hold for a few days....
Jump forward to yesterday when I visited a local gallery to specifically see the work of Bethany Kalk. Combined with her wonderful imagery (inspired by nature - what could be more wonderful?) and painting with wax technique (oh! the layers and delicate line highlighting select forms) I was ready to jump in and play (though it was hard not to be fearful after seeing such work).
The following images are the result (please excuse the glare! (I may need to recapture to give justice to, what I think is, my progress made.....)):
|I explored layers and colors|
|in a very different way than before.|
|But of course, there's a Tiny Little House....|
|The completed 6" square painting on wood.|
I wonder.... what shall its title be?
I'm curious to give this combination another try.... As always, stay tuned :)
