City Stories

I've been busy in my outdoor studio dreaming new wax encaustic "city stories" into a small collection of work. I am not sure where the city inspiration has come from -- but Asheville is a much more urban setting than our prior home in Northport, NY. Yet Western North Carolina is also a truly gorgeous, nature-infused area.  I think it is the tension between these two worlds which is inspiring my newest encaustic work.  And this is kind of unavoidable now that my new studio is literally outside! I'm happy to find that a few animals - nocturnal ones -- have for the first time snuck into my paintings as well.
