America


Today, I was finally able to finish my diptych of the America flag that I've been working on for a while now in encaustic.  I had run out of gas in my propane torch and ran by Lowe's earlier and was able to fuse the last layer of the painting.  It is sealed and ready to sell!  I envision this being hung as one piece with each piece held together by 2 hooks and rings.  My husband will have to do that for me or my local frame shop if Todd can't get to it as soon as I need it.  This piece was inspired by Jasper Johns' flag that he did many years ago.  I love alot of his encaustic pieces!

Got Black History Month on my mind here in my studio! Last week I painted B. B. King, and this week? Billie Holiday! I'm posting it FRESH off my easel without really studying it much. I may make some changes since viewing the photos, it now seems a bit cartoon-y, which means "tight." So, let me know what you think!

The Maine Thing


Today's painting began early this morning on my porch, and I just had the inspiration to get one done as it is June, and I really want to start painting as many mornings as possible.  And sitting on my cart was a great photo of this blue crab, so there I went. I've painted many crabs, but not one this small, but people tend to love them because they go well at beach homes and small special areas of any home.  This small piece is full of texture and rich color.  Let me know what you think!
