Hopeful Darkness, a group exhibition sponsored by International Encaustic Artists, is on display at Atlantic Gallery, 548 West 28th St. #540, New York City, New York. I'm so honored to be a part of this exhibition with other fantastic artists with my piece Secret Wanderings 1!

Now I have written my report on my grant year and the article is in this issue of encaustiZINE Magazine. My grant was used for materials for my solo exhibition at the Kansas City Artists Coalition Underground Gallery. It was a busy and rewarding year! Also my work Cross Lands 1 made the cover. Thank you IEA and the Kansas City Artists Coalition.
Join me with the Studio Above artists for First Fridays on March 4th in the Kansas City Crossroads Arts District!
Thank you International Encaustic Artists!

Making Color Connections This group of four encaustic paintings titled Cross Lands 1 - 4 (24 in. x 24 in.) explores relationships between colors. Cross Lands is part of my continuing Common Ground series. Soon after starting this series I realized this was as much about diplomacy as painting. Diplomacy took the form of painterly negotiations. Seen separately they appear abstract, when the four pieces are shown together the hues coexist to suggest land and river forms seen from above. Every space where the colors meet creates a boundary. These boundaries create tension and strength. During my painterly negotiations balance was found in viewing each painting as part of one entity.
