It’s day 30 of 30 Paintings in 30 Days!
I made it and I’m so excited!!!! I waited until today to create a hot pink painting with this heart shaped piece of burned driftwood. I wanted to use it as a symbol to say thank you to everyone who supported me through this month long project. It helped so much to know there was someone out there waiting to see if I painted and the support kept me motivated to get to the studio when I was tired and busy.
Let’s take a look back at the all the paintings from the last 30 days:

The paintings I create during the 30 Paintings in 30 Days challenge will be included in my NATURE CURATED series which captures the essence of place by encapsulating carefully chosen mementos nature has seemingly left behind in a thick bed of pigmented encaustic wax. To create these paintings I explore the ocean shore and forest floor to find the perfect, unique objects (shells, pine cones, driftwood and stones) to embed in a luscious layer of wax. All of these natural objects tells the story of its origin, like the smooth edges on driftwood illustrates the journey it took undulating back and forth against the rough ocean shore. Each three-dimensional fine art painting is unique, signed by me, ready to hang and includes the place of origin.
