In The Moment

I love my studio days – the rare times when I can spend the entire day lost in the creative flow.  Yesterday was just such a day.  The preparation for creating art is all part of the process.  The hours spent mixing the encaustics – melting wax with damar resin and adding color are just as rewarding as the hours spent painting.  I love the serendipity of it all.  Yesterday was a very good day and it was all about being in the moment – ergo the name of my Bodhavista who emerged from the flow.

She String

Encaustic paint is my medium of choice. While I enjoy printmaking, mixed media and traditional paint, encaustic holds a special place in my creative heart. I love the smell of it, the texture of it, and especially the vibrancy and heat of it – I am a fire sign, after all. My latest flight of heated fancy is what I call She String; a translation of Bojana Randall’s painting “She is Violin” to wax.
