Dreaming of Encaustic Wax in Australian landscape

'Outback Dream' 


I continue to try to make art that is more from what I feel rather than what I think ! 
My aim is to create more personal work that remains true to myself, while often portraying the human element 
 
                                                       













 Encaustic wax on board 120x90cm

Encaustics in Provincetown USA 2016

I'm so lucky to be going on my first USA trip & to this amazing event in Cape Cod 

 



In anticipation I've had some fun & frustration working on this painting 

" Lands Waxy End " to take with me to get feedback at a workshop 

An old map became inspiration for my work 

An interesting read of this amazing place



Postcards I've done to sell @ Conference to raise money for scholarships
