Dreaming of Encaustic Wax in Australian landscape

'Outback Dream' 


I continue to try to make art that is more from what I feel rather than what I think ! 
My aim is to create more personal work that remains true to myself, while often portraying the human element

Encaustics in Provincetown USA 2016

I'm so lucky to be going on my first USA trip & to this amazing event in Cape Cod 

 



In anticipation I've had some fun & frustration working on this painting 

" Lands Waxy End " to take with me to get feedback at a workshop 

An old map became inspiration for my work 

An interesting read of this amazing place



Postcards I've done to sell @ Conference to raise money for scholarships

ENCAUSTIC painting is a mystery

Is this a sky landscape or an underwater scene ?
Can you find the mystery woman hidden in here ?
'Immersion' is my latest Encaustic-Wax painting - 124cm x 92cm

Detail 1 shows moving layers of wax colours with heat gun

Detail 2 shows built up textures with wax

Detail 3 shows incising out & rubbing bitumen over

One of many stages this painting went through 



It all started with a drawing, rust & wax on papers

I want to leave you with this quote today

“Don’t think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.” ― Andy Warhol
