Micro Torch for Encaustics

After my show in April of 2012 the amount of work that my design business had increased significantly. This took up so much time I was unable to do much painting for the majority of 2012 and I’m hoping there will be more balance in 2013. Now I’m not saying I minded making enough money to pay my bills, of course that was great, but I really miss the feeling and creative outlet that I can only get from painting.

One thing I seemed to do a lot of was experiment with techniques and various tools. I was given the Bernzomatic Micro Torch kit which I have had a lot of fun with.

Here’s something I like doing with it. Melting hundreds of small spots, it takes forever on large pieces and can cause physical strain if you don’t give yourself breaks (I tend to forget breaks), but it is also somewhat meditative which I find to be the case with much of what I do with encaustic.

A Thought

“Who you were yesterday is gone forever. It’s who you are today that decides what shoes you’ll be walking in tomorrow. Choose wisely.”

Woodmere Art Museum – 71st Annual Juried Exhibition

I have two pieces in the Woodmere Art Museum’s 71st Annual Juried Exhibition.

The exhibition will feature works in a wide variety of media from artists living within 50 miles of the Museum. Works were selected to create a cohesive presentation that explores contemporary themes and ideas within the arts of Philadelphia.

The exhibition was juried by artist Alex Kanevsky. Mr. Kanevsky has chosen one work of art, or in some cases two works of art, from a total of 46 artists. Over 450 artists applied to be included in this exhibition.

The exhibition will be on view July 28 through September 30, 2012.

The Open House Reception will be held on July 28, 2012 from 1:00-4:00 p.m.
