GOING ENCAUSTIC

Hi dear followers and friends, I haven’t been posting for a long time because life happened, as it sometimes does. After quite some time of recuperating and reorienting into a new way of living I am now thankfully back painting. I am super thrilled to share with you that I have begun to explore the glorious mystery of encaustic. So far, this is clear: There will be melted a whole lot of wax on my deck this summer because this was even more exciting than I anticipated.

In the following I am sharing a small collection of what I have been working on so far, as always there is a lot to learn, a lot of tools and supplies to get hold of, and a lot of trying and failing. Here is a little taste of what I am talking about, and there will be much more to come.

Clarifying, finding my gems

So, here is one of my orange series, I have slowly started to get some sense out of them. My original plan was to fill them with glow and textures and smaller details of all sorts, obtained by glazing and sanding over and over again. That part I feel is now thoroughly done! Now comes the clarifying (or half way exploring) stages where I try to bring forward gems, and adding shapes which may attract the eye from a distance, at the same time trying to tweak the overall impression to a higher key. Working title so far: “Taking Shelter” 🥰

HI ALL! It has been silent from me for a while now, because I lost my dear dog a month ago, only 4,5 years old. But, am slowly getting back to painting and want to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas!

Hi all! Thanks to an agreement with a good friend of mine who also recently lost her dog, I have been doing some more work on the diptych I started a week ago. And I am so happy I did because now I got a bit excited while I was painting, I actually enjoyed this session! Luckily I had one little prepared panel for the leftover paint also. Thanks a lot to my good friend for the gentle little push!

PLAYING with complimentary (on mixed media paper covered with cyan/magenta mixed with clear gesso) Fun evening in my studio! I had forgotten these prepared papers, and suddenly they emerged while searching for something else, they were already taped to plastic so all was ready to start a play stage 🧐😁

Two more paintings in progress.

It is always so exciting to try out new ideas, and what is better than playing with shapes on leftover-paint boards as I have done in the upper piece. Or trying to let all the tiny bits meet in a greenish large shape as I in the lower piece. (The title on the lower painting will be: “Putting on the thinking hat” by the way.) Where these will end up in the end, is still in the blue, except that they will not be blue =)
