Bound Together, 6×8 inch blank journal
For this cover, I drew upon a previous encaustic painting that I created last year called Patterns Often Overlooked. I encased the image in wax and pulled out my paints to finish off the rest of the canvas. I often like to revisit an old painting that has already left me and continue the dialogue with it again. See where my explorations take us next.
For this piece I was interested in an issue that I am always intrigued by- our connection to nature seen in the cycles of the moon and the seasons. How life begins with one little seed. But it takes so much to call forth that life. Acceptance, nourishment, cooperation, life; and then ultimately, the letting go, the passing, death. We are all connected and bound together.
