new encaustic work

I've been eating, drinking, and breathing art. The weather has been refreshingly cool, fuelling energy and inspiration. Deadlines do that to me as well-there is a lot to be said for working under pressure. The week has found me painting amidst rows of sky-high corn or ducking out at twilight for some plein air.

I also resumed some encaustic work planned for next weekend’s show. 

For many years vegetables from the garden or pears from abandoned orchards here have been constants my work.  However, I enjoy the challenges of seeing them in new ways and like to present them differently. 

Below is the first of a new series and there are a few more on the go. Fingers crossed that this  energy will keep flowing until they are finished and ready for the Greenbelt Harvest Picnic.
