The show and tell continues. This is a 12"x12" encaustic mixed media.
This summer I took an online acrylic painting class, Get Your Paint On with Lisa Congdon and Mati McDonough (http://getyourpainton.typepad.com/get-your-paint-on/). The first assignment was to explore patchwork. I've been returning to variations of it repeatedly since. It both represents and illustrates a number of themes that resonate for me.
We visited Salem yesterday. I should have done more research before going. It turned out to be a tourist town through and through. I was saddened to discover that there was so little of actual historical interest remaining.
There was an arcade that had some lovely vintage machines. More when I download photos.
