I have created a body of work
containing eleven individual pieces of art.
A home brew of
encaustic wax medium
(beeswax and damar crystals)
is the main material.
Some contain hand-spread plaster
mixed in an old cereal bowl...
some have metallic leaf
pressed into their surface...
a few embody photo copies of
trees and crows in the Columbia Gorge...
glassine was used with three
pieces to achieve a different
most have home-rusted
oil paint and pigments...
some are on wooden substrates
I already possessed and the large-scale
pieces I build the panels from scratch...
each one is different from the other,
yet some have similar components,
indicating they could be diptychs and triptychs...
the story of my imagery
spans from hanging out my bedroom window
attempting to capture crows in deciduous winter walnut trees
pulling off on the side of many roads along the Columbia River
trying to catch that moment where the dense fog lurks around the trees.
plus a lil sumpin-sumpin.
