"The Sunset Couple"
Antique photo with leaves under beeswax on panel.
I fell in love with this tiny portrait when I saw it
in an antique store in Grants Pass, Oregon last year.
They rarely smiled in portraits back in the old days.
I bet she hardly ever smiled. Period.
But the mister - I bet he had a big laugh!
Collage, sumac berries under beeswax.
I collected berries from a sumac bush
and wondered how they would behave under
wax. They're full of red pigment.
Greg took an updated picture of me for an up-coming
article. I'll be giving a demo and talk on the encaustic
technique next month for the local art council.
