In the Searching
encaustic mixed media
24×13 inches

I usually have a lot to say when I post one of my pieces on here. But today, not so much. I will let this painting speak for itself.

I had nothing to offer anybody except my own confusion. – Jack Kerouac

For me, it’s always in the searching…

    And it does speak, and I wish I could analyse how it was made, though that would spoil the magic, so I won't but just gaze and enjoy. xx

    Thank you Ann, Kim and Lisa. Ann- it was made with lots and lots of layers. Scraping and then lots and lots of layers.

    Just beautiful and peaceful. And I love how large you are working too.

    Yes, this beautiful piece certainly does speak for itself! and it keeps asking me to gaze longer.

    as I delve ever deeper into the "Mysteries of the Wax" I want to pull that piece from my screen and examine it 'up close'. ;)

    Lovely as always Miss Searcher! xo

    I too want to be closer to this painting. The quiet stillness, speaks volumes...I have already replied too much....Simply, perfectly... beautiful.

    After the flames
    only the bones
    and the bird___
    as a charcoal study
    in life.
    the meek
    shall in herit the embers.

    You know, I think this painting sums up winter perfectly.
