A Little Cab and Stilton?


It's the weekend!  I'm sharing this one that I finalized work on, but started several months ago--this large piece.  It would be great in a dining room, living room or even kitchen if you have that much wall space!

Encaustic Sundrop!


This is a favorite soda of those living in my neck of the woods.  Sundrop citrus cola.  I had to try one in encaustic since I paint so many of these in oil or acrylic.  I just sent one to Hawaii!  This one is a large piece with lots of texture.

 
Notice the layers of color and texture in this!  Blues beneath the awesome combinations of vibrant reds.  I love the layering capabilities of working in beeswax.



And here is one last detail of the cool pinhole texture and the signature in the bottom left corner.

Encaustics! Beeswax!

 
This painting was actually done a while back, but I just had not gotten it up on my blog yet.  Now that I have more encaustic pieces, I'm ready to start selling and promoting them.  They're so much fun to do--very unusual process, and they really make me step out of my box and be ultra creative!  As you can see the process of using a torch to fuse each layer also allows for times of complete melting of the beeswax/pigment, creating an abstract. 
This one is called "Green Day."
 
Detail of right bottom corner with signature.
Let me know what you think of this.  The colors are some of my personal favorites!

Tabasco 23


Another one!  A subject I'm known for painting.  This is #23. I strived for a cool/warm green tone background with the warm red of the Tabasco.  This is a fun sized canvas at 24x8 full of wonderful texture applied with a knife.  It will gladly squeeze into a crevice in your kitchen. ;)

Food & Drink Paintings!


Finished this fun Sundrop today--got the glossy finish on it, and it's ready to go!  Makes a great gift for that Sundrop lover.  Don't know what Sundrop is?  It is a regionally made and sold soda in certain areas of Tennessee and Alabama.  People love it!  It is similar to Mello Yellow. ;)
