When I start a new artwork ALL the Hanji has to be brought out for play! New colors are a great inspiration for getting the creative juices to flow.

A view of "Serendipity No.6". This is the last in the series for a while as I am looking forward to getting back to larger scale artwork. All 6 of the "Serendipity" group will be available during the Salida Studio Tour in September.

Seeing the details of this recent artwork helps to get the feel of the fused Hanji and the effect of the layer of resin I apply as part of the process. I explain my inspiration for this piece in my latest Post on PJBERGIN.COM. #Joomchi #mulberrypaper #SalidaColorado #AbstractExpressionism #fineartpapers #encaustic #brightcolors #hanji #abstract #abstractart #contemporaryart #pjbergin #collage #coloradoartist #processart #calligraphy #salidastudiotour #korokoro #encausticmedium

#CalltoEarth is my newest #Buddha painted with #encausticmedium #alcoholink and #oilstick (It's inspired by one of the Buddha statues I saw in London when visiting the Victoria and Albert museum, made of gilded copper). #VictoriaAndAlbertMuseum #gildedcopper
Buffing my encaustic pieces getting ready for framing. I am always amazed at how shiny they become once the "bloom" is gone. In encaustic, the bloom is a naturally occurring haze that can appear during the first six to twelve months as the wax cures. Such a fascinating medium! .

I made my own encaustic medium and colored encaustic paint today - for the first time! Like all firsts, I learned a few lessons for how I can improve next time and really enjoyed this new adventure on my artist journey. I’m loving these metallic colors from Kama Pigments. Can hardly wait to get started!

This is a detail. I love how the raffia looks buried in the encaustic paint, and how the edges pick up the metallic pigment. All sharp lines balanced when the tar paper below, spills over with all its luscious color and texture.

Working with new ratio formulations of my encaustic medium to give the perfect luscious & supple layers with just the right hardness to draw my wee blooms on. Experimenting and tweaking has opened up a world of possibilities!

What was your favorite hiding place as a kid? Mine was a big ole’ oak tree in my backyard in Fairfax, Va. I loved hiding from the world up there. I felt like a queen surveying her kingdom from above. Maybe a little tree climbing would do me some good right now. “Enchanted Throne”, encaustic on 8”x10” wood panel framed. Available for purchase - see link in profile.

In encaustic, I’m never really in complete control of the outcome. That’s what I love about it! For instance, see the little figure on top of the mountain? Total happy accident. I kept him there and named this piece “Sole Wanderer”. A bit of a stretch, but I like it.

Working big is something relatively new to me. Heck, I created 30’ murals in the day. But, when it’s a panel, my concentration becomes intense. Deep breath. Let go. Just paint. 😑

Next up, “Place Through Process” at Gallery X @castlehilltruro . Cherie Mittenthal’s moody, atmospheric vignettes evoke memory, loss, resilience and beauty in whispered places. Her empty chairs slay me. And Stephanie Roberts-Camello’s pieces intrigue, inviting viewers to puzzle through their meaning or provide their own. Her ability to manipulate her materials is masterful. #trurocenterfortheartsatcastlehill #trurocenterforthearts #stephanierobertscamello #cheriemittenthal #encaustic #encausticmedium #contemporaryart #contemporaryartist #contemporarypainter #intlencausticconf12 #internationalencausticconference #internationalencausticconference2018

Dry brush is one of my favorite and most used techniques in encaustic. Repetitively brushing an area with a paint-loaded brush creates a build up of wax giving great texture. You can see it here depicting snow bank by an icy lake.

What’s your favorite color? Obviously, I can’t get enough turquoise - it’s happy, bright, full of energy. And, it’s a predominant color in my work. #turquoise #teal

No pigment in the medium at all in this one. The only color comes from strips of lokta paper. A little white shellac on top for good measure.

Exploring deeper into water imagery, I’m using encaustic as a transparent layer over the base painting also done in encaustic as well as shellac. The rippling effect is almost hypnotic to me. Perhaps this image would have even greater impact in a bigger format. What do you think? “Tide pool”, encaustic mixed media on 8”x8” Wood Panel. #mixedmedia

The beginning of a painting is for me the most exciting time of creativity. Jasper John, the father of modern encaustic painting, said that he either sees it and paints it or paints it then sees it. I really never know what will be revealed until it’s done and THAT is why I love this unpredictable medium so much.

Encaustic means "to burn in" and the medium is unlike any other. The paint for this piece is made from beeswax, a tree resin called damar, and natural earth pigments. The wax is layered on while molten, and must be fused, or burnt into, the layer below using heat. I use both blow torch (for fast, smooth fusing) and heat gun (to maintain texture and control). Wax can be carved and manipulated as shown here, and an oil inlay is used for the details on the trees. Stay tuned for the finished piece!

My latest collection of art is centered around rushing water. Personally, I’m really afraid of the power of water. My worst nightmare is being stranded on the ocean, alone. Maybe that’s why I paint it. The beauty and awesome power of turbulent water draws me in and I need to express “what batters us makes us stronger”. Encaustic beeswax medium I believe beautifully captures the fluidity of water as shown in this piece. “Battered Shore”, encaustic, 8”x8” Panel. Come by #wlast and see it in person. June 2-3.

The building blocks of my chosen medium: damar resin, which is the amber-like sap of Indonesian rainforest trees, and raw beeswax (unfiltered shown here, but I also use charcoal filtered beeswax which is whiter). Melt it all together and the product is the base "paint" which I combine with powdered earth pigments, oil paint, or pastel to achieve a desired colour.
