India inks and oils over encaustic over watercolor.
The edges of day, last brilliant glimmers of light as the sun slips down below the Northern Catskill Mountains. I’m drawn, again and again, to this theme of ephemeral, temporal beauty and wonder as the light whispers at dusk and dawn. Working with these layers of translucent media allows much depth, atmosphere, and light.
Recently on display at The Carrie Haddad Gallery in Hudson, New York, this 8 x 8 painting has found a new home.

I am humbled, thrilled, and still in a state of shock to learn that Wetland at Dusk has received this year’s Faber Birren National Color Award for original and creative expression of color!
As with much of my recent work, I started this piece with watercolors on a gessoed panel and then built layers of encaustics and oils with beeswax. My original intent was to do a painting inspired by Yellowstone’s colorful geothermal Artists Paintpots.
While I was pleased with the early layers, they didn’t quite capture the Paintpots as I recalled them. The piece evolved in a very different direction, and I followed, willingly.

Exploring the theme of creating a sense of vastness through very small paintings. Starting with a wash of watercolors on a cradled wood panel, I build layers of encaustics, create the turbulent sky by intensifying the heat with a heat gun and then adding touches of oil paints mixed with beeswax.
