I’m in love with the immediacy of both encaustic (wax) and water-based media.
They both force me to “be in the moment” like nothing else I know.
They place me in a surreal, totally responsive mode.
Mixing media challenges and stretches my perceptions.
Having written several books and articles,
I have experienced the safety net of an editor.
When showing another person one of my paintings,
I stand exposed and vulnerable. No editor.
It’s now between the artist and the viewer.
