the deep knowing, encaustic, 11×14 inches
“In the sweet territory of silence we touch the mystery. It’s the place of reflection and contemplation, and it’s the place where we can connect with the deep knowing, to the deep wisdom way.”~ Angeles Arrien
I had been working on this painting for a while now. Lots and lots of layers of wax. 11×14 inches is by no means a large painting, but it is one of my larger encaustic paintings. I am really enjoying painting larger these days.
Now, if only I could figure out how to take better photos of encaustics. This photo does not do it justice.
I was listening to an interview of Toni Morrison on NPR this morning while working and found out that she didn’t start writing until she became a mother! I wish I could find a transcript so that I can quote what she said, but I can’t seem to locate it. She said something to the effect that it wasn’t until she became a mother that she was allowed to be fully herself. I found that to be so fascinating. And inspiring.
