January Dawn

Why do I paint with encaustics? The glow, the texture, the layers.

R and F paints make an Indian Yellow linseed oil and beeswax pigment stick. There’s something about the color and creamy texture that I keep returning to as I attempt to infuse paintings with the late day light of the Northern Catskills.

The Basic Creek Reservoir in Westerlo, NY. A daily source of inspiration – changing light, texture, color – and thriving with life. Anticipating the return of heron and eagles any day now…

Heron Rookery Monoprints

I created this series by pouring a plate of gelatin on glass. I then cut masks and stencils using manilla folders and posterboard. I then applied ink to the gelatin plate, pulled the prints, and for some, did additional layers of encaustic wax and oil paints.
