Opal Moon Encaustic (Beeswax, resin, pigment) 18 x 18 x2 inches - “Opal Moon” represents the colors and textures of nature as gemstone. This theme is one to which I have often returned in representing earth and cosmos of the growing seasons. The selection of color is original to this painting. Encaustic as a medium is comprised of heated pigmented beeswax and I find that in its creative fluid state lucky accidents influence the direction of work. This has a sense of mystery for the inherent characteristics of beeswax I believe expressive of atmospheric and natural subjects. Ever-changing light illuminates the Blue Ridge Mountains of my home. More than superficial appearance, this environment suggests subject and also a place in which a journey in paint begins. In “Opal Moon” I have used encaustic painting methods of heated, pigmented beeswax to represent the colors and textures of nature. By techniques of brushing, pouring and carving the wax, the fusing of multiple layers results in a surface of lustrous dimension. Many of the themes of my work begin as study of the atmospheric beauty of landscape surrounding my home but during the process of painting imaginative changes in direction originate a more intuitive and creative process of blending material and vision.
