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.

Build a good name. Keep your name clean. Don’t make compromises, don’t worry about making a bunch of money or being successful. Be concerned about doing good work. Protect your work and if you build a good name, eventually that name will be its own currency. Life is like a roller coaster ride, it is never going to be perfect. It is going to have perfect moments and rough spots, but it’s all worth it
