wise words of Emily Carr

I think that one's art is a growth inside one. I do not think one can explain growth. It is silent and subtle. One does not keep digging up a plant to see how it grows.-Emily Carr

 I  have been enjoying the rhythm of working -a lot-immersed in painted  landscapes
during the day (with two large works on the go) 

-and the nights are filled with encaustic. 

These small images are sections of one work.

 -because the proportions

 make it impossible to show the details of the whole image 

as one would when viewed 'live'.

  1. 4" x 50" WOW! This has to be so impressive in real life. But thanks for showing the sections up closer so we can see the lovely feathers.
