Encaustic show

Great news, Anna Koot, Wendy Orr and myself are doing an encaustic show at the Blyth Festival Gallery on June 22, 2012. It's called "Thre Hot Irons". These are two of the friends that did "Fusion" with me this year. Time to make some new work, the theme is loosly rural. Wendy Orr is well on her way with some done after her trip to Newfoundland.

"Hidden Arches" is done with paper casting and lichen on masonite and painted with encaustic.

The 2 others insist on loading upside down...can't figure it out. This one is suppossed to be the other way around althought the viewer may not realize it. The other is a landscape and so there is no point in adding it until I can figure out the problem. All three photos are from the same file. The one above was done with strings pulled out from under the layers of wax and then some extra carving done. The rust hinge is also seems to have fooled a few people, who thought it was real.
