View Full Version : The Realm Under The Surface and Blue Opus
03-16-2014, 10:26 AM
Two new ones from me...One is a commission "Blue Opus" the other "The Realm Under The Surface" is for a Gallery that I work with....
Both extend the current series I am working on Submerged....I am painting with the oil stick on these, which has allowed me to create more form, contour, shape.....trying to evolve, as always - both are encaustic
C and C welcomed
"The Realm Under the Surface" 24X36
"Blue Opus" 12X30

I'm enjoying watching you develop your technique, and this series. These are probably my favorites, especially the first one.

You work has really developed in this medium and these are super-super. BTW how did your show go Betsy?

thanks for the feedback WC friends!!
Dave, my show has been going great so far....the closing reception is April 5th - so hoping that drives some good traffic. I also got my work into a new place that is in the Bishop Arts District of Dallas and has a good reputation for carrying strong emerging artists.....I am hoping that I will be able to sell regularly there. It is a process establishing oneself as a working artist....but I am really enjoying it and feel so grateful that be able to fulfill this part of myself. Wet Canvas has been such an important resource and outlet for me, providing me with a place to get feedback, support, encouragement and validation.
All of you...matter and make a difference...thank you!!

I love the variation in the first one and the composition in the second, both beautiful

Maybe I should call it just "Realm" any thoughts on that?
