Till the Stars Fall Down

"Till the Stars Fall Down" - Encaustic and mixed media on 1 3/4 inch panel. Prints for sale here.

This is my brand new encaustic piece -- it features the Brooklyn Bridge with a view of Manhattan. It took me about a million years to paint the sky and stars just right with wax. Plus I dripped clear wax downward onto the painting for a 'falling star' feeling. I really love this one... not sure about my favorite part, but it may just be the groovy water that I added at the last minute.

Happy Found Art Friday: CHANGE

This is a BIG change for me! This is my first foray into JEWELRY! These two pendants are created from my paintings: "When One Door Closes, Another Opens," and "Pretty Lady." Each piece is set in a silver square and coated with glossy resin. And, at the suggestion of my friend, Lisa, at Caffe Portofino, I've dangled them on simple leather cords. Buy one here!
Gorgeous drawing for "Change" by Claire -- who is in the oppostite time zone from us here in the United States. For Claire, the season change is Spring, not Autumn, and she has fittingly rendered a floral tree!

Beautiful "Change" painting by Esther. And I love her blog post about this process of creation. So cool. Thank you, Esther, for contributing this lovely piece.

Autumn Lullaby

"Autumn Lullaby" 8x10 Encaustic & Mixed Media on Cradled Wood Panel
Prints for sale here.
This is a new painting I finished today (the children are back in school!). It was inspired by thinking about our "change" theme for this month's Found Art Friday. I was thinking, of course, about the change of seasons and the word "Fall" in particular. I started thinking that Autumn was like the earth falling asleep for the cold hiberation of winter. So I incorporated music into the painting to convey a lullaby for this restful slumber.
Please join us for FAF this Friday. This may be my entry, though I do have another "change" I might be able to share as well!! Send me your blog link or jpeg, and I will post your creative interpretation of "change" at the end of the week.
