Encaustic paintings 
The technique: Beeswax and damar resin melted together with pigment, then applied while hot and fluid to a panel, each layer is fused with the previous layer with a hot air gun or torch. How the medium flows with the hot air is often a surprise and part of the magic for me, plus the wonderful smell of beeswax in the studio, the rich transparent surface, smooth or bumpy ---
                            ahh wonderful and delicious --- also an homage to the bees.....

My most recent series of small 8x8x1,5" panels started with a question: "What if"...
taking a playful approach, making spontaneous, no-mind decision about color, shapes and line but then going back to the conscious decision making about formal elements.
I am happy with the results of this playful uplifting series of little paintings. they are ready to hang without a frame and work well in multiples.
