Release your Inner Artist

"The process of painting springs from interest. The artist is done when that special thing has been said." Robert Henri


Making art is so often about experimenting!  There is no right or wrong way to make art. We  are all artists!
Get out there and make some art. Nature is the premier inspiration and there is no better time to be inspired than in the Fall with brilliant warm colors everywhere you look.

This piece is made from what I believe is a rusted license plate (I found it on the ground)!  Encaustic colors are heat fused to it in layers. I am inspired by walking around Asheville, North Carolina as the season changes. Check  The Urban Art Retreat and Studio for encaustic workshops or en plein air gatherings. I offer them quite frequently.
