encaustic on board 2'x 2'
this series of birch and black capped chickadees are my favorite.
in this series i make the two snuggling birds in the shape of a heart.

three chicks


this is a 1'x 3' encaustic on board.
there are 3 - 1'x 1' frames temporarily being held together by clamps on the back.

i am painting each 1'x 1' section so that when i finish and take them apart they will stand alone or can be rearranged as a grouping.
i will post the finished pieces tomorrow.

i just roughed in the 3 black capped chickadees.

thanks for watching
