DIY Encaustic Tools and Painting

Awhile ago I did an encaustic mixed media piece created with Crayola and acrylic paint. Though I liked the way it turned out I thought it might be even better toned down a bit. I decided to go back and make it less abstract. The first step was to gather all my tools. All you […]

I tried everything I could to photograph, scan or whatever to get this painting to show its true face. I thought because of its online presentation it might be with me awhile, not so. Passion Flower will go to its new home and will take along with it the little girl with the funny feet […]

Passion Flower

I couldn’t fit another image in this painting if I tried, and that’s the point. This is a snapshot of PTSD, a quick look inside my head that doesn’t stop running. I do like this painting, it’s not a negative piece of art, I don’t mean that at all. It’s just that often my head feels […]

Like Girls Do – My Face My Art

To combine art scribbled in black ink, inked in with deep blue, crimson and yellow can be sobering. To add these art pieces as a collage over the face they affect was to show that Lupus is more than what you read on a blog. It’s more than the art itself. It’s not pretty. What […]

I might have been torn to pieces

Dorothy in the Meadow

This small painting shows a young girl with droopy eyes and blue hanging above them. Cardinals and birds of strange feathers hold her braids like ribbons. Together in the meadow of wildflowers they find quiet solace. Dorothy is a multi-media collage art piece on heavy card stock. The birds are hand cut and placed in her […]
