"Dis" A pen and ink study

"Dis" - the prefix of many words associated with things that create ill or negative effects: DISease, DISablilty, DIScomfort, DISassociation, DISlike, DISown, etc.  These things can create chaos or conditions that affect us profoundly, sometimes for a moment but sometimes for a lifetime. 
DIS Disease Dislike Disable Disown

I await With hesitation As the anxious wave Abates
Emotions melt Within the façade Bringing only Desire and need
Fire heats And melts The hardness Of my heart
Bringing me To a place Of contented Resignation

Silent Sanctity

Swirling flurries Dance in the sky As a blanket Of white Covers the ground

In silent sanctity

About Encaustic

I was thinking that some of you may not be familiar with encaustic so here's a blurb about it!  Enjoy!


The Art of Encaustic Painting
Encaustic is a word that is used to describe the medium as well as the painting process.  A Greek word (enkaustikos) meaning ‘to burn’, encaustic utilizes melted bees wax, damar resin, and pigment to create the paint.  It is one of the oldest painting mediums, dating back to the Egyptians and the Greco-Romans.  Wax was originally used to coat sea faring ships and eventually encaustics were used to paint the sculptures that were ornamenting them.  The Greeks and Romans used encaustics to paint their sculptures and pottery while the Egyptians used the medium to create life-like portraits for coffins.  Within the Byzantine period, encaustic was also used to create icons of Christ and the Saints.  While used sparingly during the Renaissance through the 18th and 19th centuries, encaustic was revived as a contemporary medium with Jasper Johns during the 1950…
