Spotlight on Golden Pond


20″ x 16″

Encaustic collage was used for this pond scene to give hard lines for the sticks and grasses in the painting.  The embedded paper, dried sea grass and dried flowers gave some real dimension to the feeling of looking down through the water.

Tidal Cove


12″ x 12″

The Coquille Point rock formations soften the tides as they spill around the rocks to form ever changing ripply pools. With this painting, in addition to layering and scraping, a heat pen was used to capture the reflective water patterns.
