Today was a studio day, working on inspiration from yesterday’s trip to the marshes and experimenting with drawing and layers of wax paper.
I took a chance and drove north to check out Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge. In the winter season, only a 4 mile loop drive is open to the public…
Instead of eating lunch, I ducked out between cloudbursts to continue my investigation of the creek trail.
Long-term projects always seem to include a period of resistance as my mind wraps itself around something bigger than usual.
For the next eight days, I will be working on abstract encaustic wax paintings at the Marjie Mabel Project artist residency in Vancouver, Washington.
This month, I spent a week traveling and painting along the Oregon coast from Cannon Beach to Port Orford, south of Bandon.
