Updates to Website

I have recently posted all of my work so far from my current ‘Folklore’ series under the “Current Work – Folktale Series (2013-2017)” section on the lefthand side of the home page, and under the “2010-2013 Paintings” subpage, found under “Previous Work” from the home page.  I still have images to post to the 2010-2013 section from the “Tapestry Series”, which was my first series of encaustic paintings, so check back soon!  More to come under “Previous Work” for prior years.

Also – works in the studio – complete or nearly so

This past Sunday, I took some time out from my anatomy studies to move forward on some encaustic pieces that have been hanging around.

These first 2 are 99.9% done, but just need to be fused.

This is maybe halfway done:

And this is still only about 1/3 of the way done, just after the web has been gently fused in a bit:
