One of My Favorite Encaustic Paintings

I am presently seeking out new territory in my paintings, and it’s too soon to show what I’m trying to learn now.  So, for your viewing pleasure today, here is one of my favorite paintings from my encaustic period (which lasted maybe 3-4 years, and may not yet be over).  This is the 4th in a series of 4 paintings of poppies – a very popular group of paintings.

You’ve gotta be original, because if you’re like someone else, what do they need you for?

  • You should be an entertainment writer too. ;) Before I read the ‘unfinished’ statement I was thinking it’s ‘Under stated’ not a criticism just an option on style. I wondered if painting facial detail intimidated you ? Yet I believe you may have intended to add facial expression, although having none is a statement in itself. The tonal value overall is excellent and it almost reminds me of a more relaxed David Hockney. More fun, freer and there was me thinking the figure was wearing a baseball cap backwards. Well it was amusing to hear scholars debate your scarf. Too funny.
