Here are some results of recent encaustic technique tests. All techniques are inspired by Patricia Baldwin Seggebruch's book Encaustic Mixed Media.

I had to share as I am soooo chuffed!!!!! He usually doesn't comment on my work,I have grizzled about it here but today he made up for it all with one word!
Doin' the happy dance!I called the red and black one with charcoal scribble in my previous post "respect".…Continue
Hey, everyone. Unless you have been living under a rock for the past five years, you might have noticed that the quality of student grade acrylic gesso has gone down the drain. It is much runnier and more transparent than the thicker gesso we grew up with. Certainly, you can go ahead and invest in Golden products, but I have come up with something better. So...what do we do? Don't throw out your poor quality gesso! First of all, you'll need to head back to your art store and buy a bag of…Continue
"Équinoxe de l'Automne" is finished with watercolour and graphite pencil.
She and I have had several long conversations over the last few weeks, and it seems she finds my questions impertinent, and always replies with "None of your business." So, that being that, the contents of her little box are…
I have been struggling with this beast for far too long! Do you think it is done? Anything need to be added or taken away? I can't tell myself anymore *sigh* Any input would be SO appreciated!Continue
Hi all.... it's been a while since I posted in my blog and its another video about "Tthe Big Picture"... I am trying some new editing software - Corel Video Studio…Continue
The other day I was looking through one of the books on my bookshelf - a book I haven't read for a couple of years - and as I thumbed through the pages a little scrap of a doodle fell out. Apparently I had stuck it in between the pages as a bookmark.
This falling scrap of a doodle several…Continue
I've been thinking about a large scale project. A mural. There's a barn in town that is covered in graffti (and not the cool artistic kind. just the sloppy scrawled names of high school students) that I want to cover over with a bird themed mural.
So I've been working in variety of ways on birds. I would like to cover the barn with a variety of birds.
My wife especially likes penguins.
It is madness that I make most of my living working on making Videos and Television... and I have not made a video for posting here.
The truth is that I write and direct others... the camea crew, the editors, etc to do the actual shooting and assembly of the film. So this is a bit of new step for me. I am trying out Windows Movie Maker which is a very basic program, but dead easy to use.
This is the first time I have tried this, so I hope it works out okay.…Continue
I've had some ideas in my head about this painting all month long, and finally, I had a moment to sit down and release it. After two days of intense painting, it's finished at last!
I have a fascination with ambinism, and I'd like to make more albino faeries (with animal friends) in the new…Continue
I was chatting with some LMM artists this morning Brisbane time and one of them asked what I was working on at the moment. I told them I was about to start on a large canvas (5 feet square) which would be a companion painting to one I had finished some years earlier.
The earlier picture took me a long time to finish (over a year) but the beauty of it for me is that it is the kind of picture that I can work on a little bit at a time. I didn’t have to make too many more creative…Continue

Crazy year. Quiet. Officially unemployed. Ah, but the spiritual growth has been record breaking for me. This puts to rest the idea that we become something and that's who we are. So far, I haven't had a quiet life, just a quiet year, which beats last year; an epic of car crashes, physical therapy, and letters from the IRS was non-stop and embarrassingly public. Or rather, it could have been embarrassing but I no longer care what things appear to be, only what they really are and then I like…Continue
I've been avoiding LMM for awhile, out of shame and frustration... I hadn't painted anything - anything worth celebrating since August and it was really bugging me. I did other things. I used my camera and expeimented with some photoshop techniques. I made some music. I played with my kids... But what I really wanted to do was get back to painting.
Well maybe my funk has passed.
Here's something I started yesterday. It's nowhere near done, but I think you can…
