I am swamped trying to tie up last year’s loose ends and clear off my desk  before plunging back into projects I set aside in order to enjoy the holidays with my family. There’s the holiday cards to finish, Christmas clutter to rearrange, news to catch up on….and so on and so forth.  While I focus on cleaning, I’d like to share with you some of my my son’s encaustic art. I love his playfulness, inventiveness and interest in experimenting  with different media to embed,textures and techniques. Here are som of my favorites:

Experiment with color:

With texture:

Embedding fabric:

Feather and fireflies:

Composition:

But perhaps his most intriguing piece is one he says he constructed by adding the wax while holding the piece up-side-down.

His imagination is admirable.

Oooo. I have been reveling in the art work of Eyvand Earle today.
Thought you might like to revel a bit as well.

Being a painter, I will tell you just what I try to do when I paint. Beauty is the thing we are all searching for. Exactly what beauty is I have never known anyone to be able to say exactly? As far as I know, truth is beauty, but often the truth is not beautiful. In nature when I look I see trees, some of them are such that they thrill me with their perfection and their sweeping lines and certain mood they seem to have. Windswept plains give me something that can’t be seen. In every tree I feel as though I could see the soul of that tree. It is alive. It is a person. And if beauty be related to the truth, harmony and balance must be there, and there must be movement because in nature all things move. And there are certain laws such as the law of duality. Everything has its opposite. Nothing is without its opposite. If I want a bright light in a painting, I must have a dark shadow. If I want a color to look very warm, I must have also a very cold color, and so on and on forever. But when I paint, I forget the things I know. I just sit there painting away, trying to get the feeling into my painting that I feel inside. Whatever beauty is, I feel it, and as long as I can I shall try to find more and more beauty, and to put it down so that others can see what I have seen.

–Eyvind Earle

And if I had to choose a favorite, and thank goodness I don’t, this would be a top contender.
