Encaustic Photos On View @ RiverWInds Gallery

It's always very satisfying, when you complete a series, to see them hung all together -- 17 of them! I have been working on Into the Woods - a portfolio of photos mounted on board and coated with encaustic (which is beeswax and damar resin.  There's a longer description of the process in one of my August blogs.)  The sizes are intimate:  5x5, 8x8, 10x10.

One artist, a painter, noted that the encaustic adds atmosphere to the images, a soft, floating quality.  I also like that the image stands alone -- no mat, glass, frame.  The series is in the front room of  my gallery, RiverWinds, in Beacon, NY, through this weekend.  After that, it will move but stay within the gallery -  Below are some of the images.
