There is a Field

Encaustic on panels

This painting was commissioned by Jan and Terry Gibbon of Kelowna. What a pleasure to share the process with them. The painting was to hang in a specific place  over a magnificent stone fireplace and the colours were to both harmonize and bring new colour into the room. Cobalt irises and deep yellow California poppies draw the eye into a lush and vibrant garden.  They tell me that at a time of change and movement,  the work should bring new colours and even new ideas iabout artwork into their lives.  Funny how encaustic, the oldest medium in the world is brought forward to new purpose.
