I made this portrait of the Chinese artist and sage, Qi Baishi, with nothing but wax and old Chinese postage stamps. He lived nearly 100 years and saw China move from dynasty to republic to communist nation. The background is an antique screen, and the sage’s head looms large in the sky. #multimedia#encaustic#qibaishi#collageart#portraiture#alicorser
‘Stone hinge’ - Jane Brooks @barakabeads combined stone beads with Greek ceramic beads to act like hinges between brass arcs to create a simple yet earthy and striking necklace. Jane collects beads whenever and from wherever she can around the world and then transforms the loose beads into her own creations - whether they be bold and playful necklaces, conservative or delicate pieces, or varied and colourful earrings.

The Blue Wave is coming next month! To get ready, these two little 8x8 paintings will be at our Democratic Town Committee’s fundraiser Gala tonight in Westport, CT. I’m donating all sales proceeds to support local Democratic Party candidates and get out the vote - every little bit helps. Works: “Blue Wave I” and “Blue Wave II”, encaustic on cradled panel, both 8”x8”. Rock On, fellow politico artists, and get ready to Ride the Wave on November 6th! #bluewave#vote#encaustic#painting#artispolitical
Painting over my old piece, Conflagration, with oil & cold wax using my new toys.😍 While the final piece will be mostly monochromatic, traces of these colors will poke through, informing the conversation happening on the surface...
I’ve taken two road trips from Montreal to Gaspésie, straight north of north about 10 hours drive, where the St. Lawrence River becomes a sea, where the whales flip their tails and wind whips your skin. On the way up, you pass these magnifient stone and cement sculptures rising from and out of the water by Quebec artist Marcel Gagnon. 8x8" photo encaustic transfer.
