Watery Purple Rock

This smaller, 6″x6″ encaustic joins my “watery” series of high tidal waves crashing over the jetty rocks. The light blue, aqua and green water colors describe a clear summer day.

Key Bundles

“Key Bundles” is a mixed media assemblage that uses encaustic in the upper square box with tea bags imbedded in the encaustic.  I did a series of tea bag assemblages for the Art by the Sea Collage show, October, 2017.  Below are the others, “Blue Tea Strings” and “Bird Box.”  Neither uses encaustic, but explores tea bag assemblages in other ways.

Storm Waves

This small encaustic painting is done loosely to portray a turbulent sea catching the sunset colors.  Unlike my other encaustics done on encausticbord, this one is on  watercolor paper.

Watery Gold Stones

This is another in my series of 12″x12″ jetty water encaustic paintings with “Jetty Surge,” “North Jetty Splash,” “Watery Wings,” “Watery Swirls” and “Watery Aqua Sweep.” These paintings are done from reference photos taken in about the same place on the Coquille River jetty. It is amazing how individual each painting is with the ever changing water movement, light and atmosphere as well the highly fluid encaustic process.  In “Watery Gold Stones,” metallic gold encaustic paint was used on the wet stones and in some of the green waves to help capture the wet glitter of the scene.

Watery Aqua Sweep

This is another in my series of 12″x12″ jetty water encaustic paintings with “Jetty Surge,” “North Jetty Splash,” “Water Wings” and “Watery Swirls.” These paintings are done from reference photos taken in about the same place on the Coquille River jetty.  It is amazing how individual each painting is with the ever changing water movement, light and atmosphere, as well the highly fluid encaustic process.  In “Watery Aqua Sweep” the translucent aqua colored section sweeps through, dividing the rocky splashes and the next wave.

Watery Swirls

This is another in my series of 12″x12″ jetty water paintings with “Jetty Surge,”  “North Jetty Splash” and “Water Wings.” “Watery Swirls” shows the action before the splash as the wave cascades over the rocks.
