most recent works

Waaaay too much going on these days!  I've been working on a few new pieces and continuing work on others.  Today is show and tell.

First we have Quan Yin

Jungle Fever.  That's the name of the nursery in Ruston where I shot the original photo.

Then another of Rocamadour.  This time much more intimate.

The next one in this series will be the great little cottage we found over the bridge and to the right.

Then we have what I've finally settled on for my give away for the IEA Retreat

Red Skies Blue Water 9"x12" encaustic on cradled panel

And last today - but certainly not least, Gavrinis.  Definitely not finished, but another step closer.

les images de France - WIPs

A couple years back I travelled to France on a quest for a friend.  Many things happened that were marvellous.  One of which was the long circuitous route to Rocamadour.

This is my fun little work in progress. 
The shot is a bit dark given all the light in my studio - but what they hey....

From an earlier trip to France I went on a pilgrimage to Gavr'inis.  While they won't allow photos - even with a digital camera, there are several small, well photographed tourist pamphlets.

I must say my short time on the island and in the monument was well worth the time it took to get there.

This piece will (when finished) be part of my megalithic series.

For those that are sticklers, I've not placed the stones in order and they are depicted upside down.

summer's gone

We might still get a few days of warmth yet, but looks like fall is here!
