encaustic & British Invasion (sold)

Yes, another orchard, this time encaustic..

As well, an auction donation for our regional art gallery. The theme of the fundraiser is ‘British Invasion’- selected artists were given LP covers to design for the auction. This one is painted on both sides with encaustic, then I stitched wire through it to be hung diamond shaped, ideally suspended to show off the 'vibe' of both sides.

I also have 2 paintings in the show, but no photos to share. You will just have to attend the preview tonight (Friday) at the Grimsby Public Art Gallery. The gala evening of art and all things British is this Saturday night. (I wonder if the Brits ever do a 'Canadian Invasion" event...)



  1. Jan--"May"--I'm speechless--stunned. Wow!!!Your 'plaques' make a similar observation as they override all the inane verbage they're painted on.

  2. Hi Jan, I love the painting titled 'May' the bird in the tree is lovely. The encaustic effect is really suited to this wee gem of a painting. The framed effect with paint surroundings is good too. I haven't seen anything like that in our galleries up here. I wish you had had time to take photos of your paintings you put into the exhibition I am wondering if they were landscapes. I haven't heard of a Canadian invasion event probably because they haven't invaded our area! I believe a lot of Scots settled in Canada during the clearances.

  3. I hope the auction went well and your pieces sold, I wasn't able to make it.
