|June - Swim 630|
encaustic mixed media on birch 8x10
Thank you for joining me with a painting a day in June. Below is the entire month of June. It was a project of epic proportions for me - my first installment work. Each panel is for sale individually. When the painting was first viewed - it was like a full beautifully decorated cake that was uncut. No one wanted to be the first to take a piece. It was a bit disappointing for me - but the part that I did not expect, nor anticipate is the amount of joy that it brought to me as I watched people stand in front of the painting - pondering each panel, each day and talking amongst themselves about things and memories that it prompted in them. Discussions of riding in the "way back" in a station wagon on a road trip, gramma's cherry pie, June brides, Father's Day and all other things in between. It was magical for me.
