The fact that painting comes before criticism is a fact of which many are today increasingly unaware.

Sometimes I feel like I ought to have those horrible flashing red and yellow banners on my art site, proclaiming the words that I sometimes get as compliments on my work. But I won’t, because it would be tasteless and annoying to do so. At the very least.
I will, however, mention a few of those words here:
The luminosity in them is amazing.
Beautiful and terrifying….
The thing I will say about the encaustic paintings — the surface is gorgeous! Depending on the application of the paint, you can sometimes see down right through the colors. Also, they all look far better ‘in the paint’ than any digital image of them can possibly convey…
So go see them at the AVAA show, if you get a chance, or come to my studio for the next East Austin Studio Tour (mid-November). Unless they will be shown somewhere else before that, in which case, I will be sure to post about it here and on my website.
