3Nails Triptych
Encaustic on panels

I usually find working on panels intimidating. Working on paper feels like play-- light, fun, full of possibility. Art with a lower case 'a'. Panels bring about an artistic freeze-- it has to be about Art! This is serious. It's on a panel, for heaven's sake.
But recently I have felt the urge to return to panels and build them up with layers, lines, intersections of color and then add bits of hardware to them. Despite the weight of the works themselves, the process of making them feels... light! We'll see where this goes...
