Agitated Sea

This smaller, 6″x6″ painting is done with encaustic and oil pastels on watercolor paper. It started as a way to use up excess materials as I painted larger pieces, but it shortly took on a life of its own. It amazes me how many interesting painting effects can happen in such a small space with encaustics.

Wizard’s Hat

16″ x 20″   sold

Sea and light splashed around the Wizard’s Hat repeating the stone’s triangular shape on the beach.  The Wizard’s Hat is a frequently photographed rock formation in Bandon, Oregon, and the ever changing coastal light and tides make each image unique.  Encaustic was a great medium to capture the seemingly liquid light as well as the dark textures of the rocks and beach.
