Again, after a long absence due to ‘life’ just getting in the way a new encaustic has been created!
Measuring 100 cm x 50 cm or 39” x 20” in real terms it is at a stage where I felt I ought to stop. Maybe, there will be some boats added? I’ll have to think about it.

It really doesn’t take too much imagination to visualise these busy fairies darting about! Hither, thither as they fly, darting from one area to another…..

An experiment with silver metalic wax. Painted on box canvas the picture has been wrapped around the frame.
Against a black background it takes on a different ‘feel’ giving accent to other areas.
Whilst when placed with a light at the rear different colours and images stand out for the viewer.

Yep, a bit like a voice from the past! I am still here, alive and kicking, I think!
Life has overtaken me lately hence my absence but today, I felt creative and wanted to paint with my waxes for our new ‘bolt hole’ in Devon. I have a couple of paintings already hung there but one thing I had never done but had always been tempted to try. That was what I call a ‘Trilogy’ of paintings. You know 3 paintings in their own right but actually when placed next to each other they create a panoramic view? Never did it before, so took a deep breath, and this is what happened!
The subject matter is based on some photographs I took of the lake view near our ‘bolt hole’. A wonderfully tranquil setting with lots of trees and absolute peace…. wonderful!
Now view them together to make a panoramic view of the lake!
Now I just have to decide where to hang them!

A group I belong to on Etsy.com is called Boomers and Beyond Etsy Street Team, or, simply the BBEST team! Often we have activities which bring members together. This April we have one entitled, Spring.
Thinking caps on….
This is what emerged from my fair hand!
