I've been working in encaustics for about two months now and I am thoroughly in love with wax. Encaustics allow me to work thin or thick, transparent or opaque -- I can scrape, carve or etch into the surface. I've been using original drawing transfers to embellish the surface to create paintings which reflect my love of nature.

I've been working like mad on a series of drawings: "Documenting 195 Lake" -- ball point pen drawings 36x24 of my little bungalow in Saratoga Springs. The house just sold and the drawings are a fairwell to my life in Saratoga Springs. It's been a difficult move but a necessary one -- life in Bonita Springs, Florida is pretty nice.

If I haven’t seen you yet this summer, I just want to say hello and share our summer news. Gallery 100 already is busy this season, creating a permanent exhibit for a business that has an ideal public space to showcase fine art. I’m looking for regional artists to include in the collection, which will be local. Specifically, I am looking for paintings, prints, and mixed media works that reflect the beautiful region where we live. If you have any pieces we can consider for this project, I encourage you to drop me an email and send a jpeg file to: firstname.lastname@example.org I look forward to your updates and to seeing your work.

I've just been hired to put together a collection of artwork -- they want local artists - meaning artist from Saratoga County, Washington County and vicinity. This is such good news that I can hardly believe my ears. Someone is actually interested in purchasing original artwork -- this must mean something. That maybe the economy is changing and getting better. I'm excited!!!
I am finally getting down to business and I've started a new series of St Thomas paintings. Working from photographs, which is an entirely new thing -- I am developing a cast of West Indian personas. People I would love to know better.
