And the water rose up.

Although it is months since it happened I am constantly reminded of the time at the end of August when "the water rose up". No one would have predicted that a tropical storm from down south could cause such wide spread devastation as it did here in Vermont. As I began this series of small 6" x 6" pieces using encaustic paint and mixed media my interest in Japanese prints, notably Hokusai and Hiroshige 's became apparent.  I looked up their varied approaches to showing moving water being reminded that the Japanese know well the quiet and the tumultuous qualities of water.


  1. I love these -- especially the bottom one. The colors are lovely.

  2. Thank you Dona (with one n)
    I am enjoying working with mixed media and will be showing them at the Equinox Village Gallery in Manchester, VT in Feb.
