About The Artwork

oil and encaustic on cradled board. Needs no framing Though widely respected in her later years, Eleanor Roosevelt was a controversial First Lady for her outspokenness, particularly her stance on racial issues. She was the first presidential spouse to hold press conferences, write a syndicated newspaper column, and speak at a national convention. On a few occasions, she publicly disagreed with her husband's policies. She launched an experimental community at Arthurdale, West Virginia, for the families of unemployed miners, later widely regarded as a failure. She advocated for expanded roles for women in the workplace, the civil rights of African Americans and Asian Americans, and the rights of World War II refugees. Following her husband's death, Eleanor remained active in politics for the rest of her life. She pressed the United States to join and support the United Nations and became one of its first delegates. She served as the first chair of the UN Commission on Human Rights, and oversaw the drafting of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Later she chaired the John F. Kennedy administration's Presidential Commission on the Status of Women. By the time of her death, she was regarded as "one of the most esteemed women in the world"; she was called "the object of almost universal respect" in her New York Times obituary.[3] In 1999, she was ranked ninth in the top ten of Gallup's List of Most Widely Admired People of the 20th Century.

I strive to make art that touches people's hearts, either abstract or figurative and has spiritual meaning for me. Through my art, I hope to connect with others with beauty of harmony, color, form and energy. Dreams and mediation often give me a starting point on an image. Then comes the applications of many layers of molten beeswax, resin and pigments; each layer is heat fused into the existing surface, AT time I draw or paint on the layers and then scrape and rebuild the facade. This action is much like analyzing a dream. Layer after layer is applied, scraped, incised, fused and marked to allow the truth of the piece to speak. The revealed under layers whisper their subtle messages. I never have total control of life or encasutic painting. Like jazz, there is improvisation that can take a work to a deeper, more subconscious state that can be meditative. I allow my subconscious to take over so that the work may transform beyond the mundane and predictable. I open my senses to the experience and emotionally consent to a poetic and thrilling adventure. The fluidity of the encaustic medium is challenging, exhilarating, inspiring and exciting, making a paintings that can be looked into as well as looked at. The layered luminosity is appealingly tactile, encouraging viewers to stroke and caress the surface, discovering the sensual experience of encasutic. I have studied color and written a book on the power of color to heal, shift moods, uplift or relax us. Color and balance is paramount in my work.
