Tears 18"x29" pigmented wax on paper 2020
Having sheltered at home during the Covid 19 Pandemic of 2020/2021 .
I concentrated on daily art making, almost as a ritual, working with encaustic paint,
through both printmaking and painting. As the seasons and my emotions changed,
so did my color combinations and the desire for experimentation. I found it to be
a curious observation in the growth of my artistic and creative abilities.
I continue to find inspiration in the nature that surrounds me .
