This weekend I was showing at the St. Paul Art Crawl, the artist next to me was a photographer Brenda Manthe, who photographs Urban Abstracts. Her pictures reminded me of this photo I took at Harriet Island which inspired one of my encaustic pieces. The photo is above, it was a chimney on one of the old buildings. The Encaustic piece is below. It includes oils pastels rust sheet music from the 1800's charcoal and a face page from vintage book. Oh and beeswax and damar resin of course.
