Spring is emerging!
Elm Avenue (C) encaustic
The longer days of sunlight are back! Each morning on my way to work, I have become enchanted with the way the light falls on the long row of unique houses on Elm Avenue. As traffic slows, I snap these candid images, print in black and white, alter them and repaint them. Next, I layer them in Encaustic medium, and further draw, paint, and shape the wax into the small renditions of Elm Avenue.
Last week, I began exploring Day Avenue. I was really taken by some of the homes! With Spring arriving and the wonderful way the sunlight showcases the homes, flowering trees are showing their colors! Soon, they will be immortalized in wax as well.
This particular piece is on its way to New York City where it will hang along with others from the Women in the Arts Foundation in the Citicorp building. I wish I could see the show in person!
