All about my journey in encaustic art and cold wax and mixed media.

Landscapes are a evolving part of my work. Sometimes leaning to the realistic and then bordering on the abstract. What is so compelling about them? Maybe it's the same charm I see when I spend time gazing out the windows at these NC mountains and skies. They are everchanging, ever inspiring. Like a gift each day with spectacular sunrises of various colors and mists of intriguing depths. There are two streams on the property...one we didn't discover until winter cleared the green vegetation and revealed its winding path alongside the drive to the house. It was a sweet surprise and over the years I have had it cleared more and more so as to enjoy it year round. That is the call of nature and I wonder if the appeal of the landscape is to take home a memory of a place or even the wish of a place we love. And the abstract landscape is to express the feeling it gave us while we we there. Something to ponder on a misty day...
