passage of time

passage of time, encaustic, 12×12 inches

So you wouldn’t believe it, but this encaustic painting started out with a beautiful black and white photocopy transfer of a nest. It was a perfect transfer, I was so happy with it. But as I started working on the piece, it just wasn’t working for me at all.

And although I was kind of bummed about wasting a perfect transfer, I am so happier with the fern in its place. Sometimes it’s better for me not to force something that just doesn’t belong. The lesson is knowing when to let expectations go.


  1. Love your last pieces. sorry I haven’t gotten back to you regarding the piece I had requested a price for, life has gotten away from me. I will contact you soon with some other inquiries. Thanks!
