encaustic monoprint::machine stitching::pinholes::on paper
Here is one of three pieces I'm sending off to Eyebuzz Gallery for the "Paper" show. It took a bit of work to reconstruct my ideas and get the wax and paper to make nice. I started by trying to use the whole piece of paper and get the saturation of color found in my other encaustic work but in a moment of clarity I decided to use more white space around my "story houses". After all isn't the idea of home as a buffer, a haven, an island of refuge that holds our dearest memories what I'm really trying to represent here....why yes, it is.
ps: we're off to yosemite for a few days and i'm super excited (the kid's don't realize just how breathtaking it's going to be...it's the kind of beauty that moves me to tears). Have you been?
