Sand Pond

16″ x 12″

Painting water fascinates me as does painting what the retreating tide leaves behind. A new little pond and dark sand ripples were left for us to find on this misty morning.

Crescent City Rocks

I have begun to go back and rework some of my less successful encaustics into new paintings. With this painting I started with an already heavy dark background and carved out the lighter areas for the ocean waves to streak across the painting. The result is a contrast of solid dark rocks with light foamy water and mist.
