Lost in a Dream (my soul stands ajar)
I finished up this painting today and am really happy with the dreamlike quality I was able to achieve (have i mentioned how much i love encaustics?). Deanna Wood did a series of bird paintings in which she talked about birds hearing our secrets and flying away with them. Now, whenever I see (or hear) one of the hundreds of crows or ravens in my new city I think of that (and wonder). The wheel, the woman, the numbers and the blackbird stringing random objects together to create meaning of chaos....lost in a dream.
