Something I enjoy doing (in my spare time) is browsing through photographs (old and new). Its fun because a lot of the time I will have completely forgotten about an image I’ve made. And lately, I’ve been photographing a lot of my artwork too, so that I’ll have a record of the process for reference. These images usually end up filed away and forgotten, but I stumbled upon a few encaustic monotypes I made recently and this one in particular caught my attention.
Probably because I’ve been Jonesin’ for the beach (Maine in particular).
Hence the name.
The image is actually just a crop from a much bigger piece. I took it with my cell phone (using the Roidizer app). I reallydo enjoy using that app!!
Its funny how inspiration can sometimes come right out of the blue (pun intended).
I was daydreaming in the studio the other day (I do this a lot) and I got to thinking about how much I enjoy working in encaustics. There is something very relaxing about the process. And I really, REALLY love the aroma of melted beeswax.
I also love photography.
Infrared, particularly so.
‘If you love it so much, why don’t you marry it?’ (remember that from elementary school?)
May I introduce…the newest addition to my family…”Infrared Encaustics”.
