3 Exciting New Mixed Media Pieces

Just finished 3 really nice Mixed Media pieces. They are “Plume Agate I”, “Plume Agate II” and “Plume Agate III”.

The Art of the Landscape

New Works

Inspired by my recent month long trip to the Yukon Territory, Alaska, British Columbia and Montana, “Alpine Beauty I” and “Alpine Beauty II” are my most recent Encaustics. I tried to capture the rich hues of the majestic mountains and trees that are abundant in this part of the world. The quaking aspen are an inspiration in themselves….so beautiful!

I find my frames at local antique shops, junk stores, Habitat Home Stores or …
