Artwork: Encaustic Paintings - Sweat Equity...

Above: Spring Rain

Above: Lake Effect

These paintings are encaustic works I've done in between demolition and dumpster-filling episodes for the old back room of the house to make way for the improved backroom. The first three paintings compose a triptych entitled Sweat Equity, and are inspired by my labor towards the room remodel---the first contains actual nails pulled during demolition; the second contains strips cut from my checkbook register; the third is made from imprints of the nails (infilled with black) and strips from my checkbook register.

Spring Rain and Lake Effect are meditations on the beauty of my local natural environment.
