"Patchwork Night"



This is my final piece for the First Friday show "Wax Squared" at Virtu next week. I still might do a couple of tweaks, but it's due at the gallery on Saturday. I wish encaustics photographed better. The texture on this piece is really rich!

Note the name-- "Patchwork Night." I've been wanting to do a series of work, and decided it's going to mimic the improvisational quilting I love. I'm considering doing textile twins of my encaustic pieces. I think it would be fun to see how each idea gets translated in the two mediums.

That's great! In my former life, I was a collections curator for an art collection. Are you a working artist?
