Opening July 15th at the Encaustic Art Institute in Santa Fe, a new show featuring 46 artists from the Encaustic Art in the 21st Century book will showcase the medium of encaustic art. I am pleased to not only be included in the book, but also included in the show. The encaustic only show will run from July 15th to August 7th and all the artwork is available for sale. An opening reception will take place on July 15th from 2-5 pm and some of the artists will be on hand to discuss their work. Sadly, I will not be making the trip, but wish for a beautiful show opening and a great attendance.

If you're interested, I am showing a piece called "High Time". It's a 30x17 inch painting with a reclaimed wood frame. I have been exploring higher contrast and saturation levels in my work this year and this is one of my most colorful paintings to date. The name, which could be construed for a trippy, pot-induced state, is more a reflection of the high saturation levels and the euphoria of being outdoors. For more information about the show or this piece, please contact the Encaustic Art Institute.
