For Shari

Art, Encaustic Wax, Inspiration, Painting

I have an accountability partner. Shari Sherman. We’ve been checking in with each other for the last six years. This week I committed to making an encaustic piece a day. Today I worked on a small piece today. I love those lone trees in the middle of a vast field. I call them witness trees. Who knows what they have seen as they’ve grown over the years. Imagine a 200 year old lifespan.

A lone tree guy was here cutting down the rest of the poplar leftover from the crew. This guy cut down this giant tree by himself. A matter of physics, spatial relations and just plain genius. Lots of chain sawing.

I have a plan for this witness tree piece. More to come…

Altered Art Journals

Altered Art Journals, Art, Illustration

The theme of this journal is Adventure. I kept thinking what kind of adventures can one have. I could highlight trips I’ve taken. I could think of times in nature. Moving. Jobs. Conventions. Coming up with ideas for art journals is a process.

And then…my art friend, Shari Sherman (who I call the girl with the paint on her hands)¬†created this piece in my first art journal a number of years back. Why not create The Adventures of Lillibeans, the Adult. Enjoy.
