"Princess of the Borderland" -- 20x24 inch encaustic & mixed media on cradled wood panel. Prints available on Etsy.
This is the last painting I'll be doing before leaving for Florida on Saturday. I really enjoyed creating this wonderland-esque, circus scene. It was such a joy to use all of the brilliant encaustic colors. And I experimented this time with more etching lines. The lines extending from the tent were a bit of a "found art" moment because I didn't know what they would really look like until 'inking' them with oil paint -- and they actually remind me of the strands of lights often hung from circus tents, so that was a cool accident.
Thank you all so much for your congrats about the Artful Blogging piece and for your enthusiasm about "GOLDEN." I'm excited, too! I will probably check in for a few posts while I'm on vacation, but the blog will be on the restful side until I return on April 1st. xox
