I love the wood on my attic floor, a good background for some work I think are finished.

Still working on collage I seem to have caught the collage bug. I am actually working on collage, rust printing, oil and wax, textile rusting and encaustic. I just move from one station to the next as it moves me...if you were watching you may think I was schizophrenic. Let's hope some good things come out of it:)

I was eating some beetroot the other day and couldn't resisting using the juices as paint. I painted on rice paper which is marvelous fun with beetroot juice and walnut ink then collaged it on a rust print. I apologize for the poor photo...my camera is on it's last legs, time for a new one.

|Two Ladies and a Baby|
My last lady is from my African memories. This is a older lady dreaming of her younger years.

This weekend I was showing at the St. Paul Art Crawl, the artist next to me was a photographer Brenda Manthe, who photographs Urban Abstracts. Her pictures reminded me of this photo I took at Harriet Island which inspired one of my encaustic pieces. The photo is above, it was a chimney on one of the old buildings. The Encaustic piece is below. It includes oils pastels rust sheet music from the 1800's charcoal and a face page from vintage book. Oh and beeswax and damar resin of course.
