I know I told you I was trying something new last month. But then I had a show in the gallery, closely followed by our annual small works show today. Whew! That being said I wanted to show you three babies I finished.
Remember, I was quilting and interpreting my landscapes... that evolved into abstract quilting with my mom's vintage fabrics... which evolved into mom's fabric hand-dyed and worked into these exquisite encaustic pieces.

Encaustic is simply wax. I layered the pieces and they glow. I am really happy with this direction. I'll get back to it soon. Also, be sure to check out my small pieces HERE
Lori! These strikingly lovely, but the fact that they are vintage hand-me-down-dresses from your family makes them even more fun. How cool is it that you can create such modern pieces with vintage fabrics?ReplyDelete
I love that you like them. I know that it is a crazy different path, but it feels right. Although at the moment I am working on a big commission piece. After the year and a half off with my mom, I feel liberated to branch out and do whatever I want. Hope you are doing well. Maybe we can paint together soon.ReplyDelete
