Turquoise


Turquoise - encaustic w/mixed media 2009

The gem for today is Turquoise and it has the look of a real stone. The marbling and veining are exaggerated and combined with the depth and translucency of the wax, this piece really mimics the properties of natural minerals. I delivered some of the show paintings to the gallery today and I can’t believe the opening is less than two weeks away. Another gem tomorrow…

yes, Alicia, I agree...beautiful. So the flavor of turquoise, rock solid. But it is the pairing with the etherial grasses which enchants me.
