painting & drawing : Encaustic : cascadia winter

In December 2016 I participated in a nine-day artist residency in Vancouver, Washington, where I created a series of larger format encaustic paintings directly inspired by the Pacific Northwest winter landscape, incorporating locally found objects.

The paintings were completed in the studio immediately after hours spent exploring local creeks and marshes in rain, snow and sun, collecting details and debris.

Some of the paintings express a specific moment, others are an accumulated memory of the landscape.
