some lil’ 5x5s

 |  November 24, 2009

This morning I dropped off some small encaustic paintings, including these three below at Sacred Art over in Lincoln Square. They are gearing up for the holiday season and wanted some small paintings for my section.

Inside Myself

5×5 inches

The title for this bird painting was inspired by this quote:

Inside myself is a place where I live all alone, and that’s where I renew my springs that never dry up. ~Pearl Buck

I really love working with just whites. Of course, I have layers of rioutous colors underneath, that you see poking up here and there. I definitely want to continue this white series, but at a larger size.

    The muted tones are beautiful Bridgette, as well as the imagery. I love the idea of them being in such a sweet intimate size. Perfect for the holidays :)
    Have a fabulous Thanksgiving, K

    these are lovely-- great division of space and how you incorporate the wax with the image is nice.
