Annual Birthday Projects

 

With Love and Gratitude Encaustic Series – Birthday Project #1

To celebrate my 50th birthday I created 100 mini encaustic works and gave them to 50 cherished family members and friends. One piece they kept as a small token of love and gratitude while the second piece they placed or hid somewhere out in the world for a stranger to find. If you are curious to learn a little about the encaustic process and more about the project or see some of the works in progress please watch the short video below.

To view the 100 works that were all created from 2 large text panels scroll down to the gallery below.

Ever More Love and Gratitude Encaustic Series – Birthday Project #2

As part of a recently established annual tradition I created a series of artworks – in this case mixed media encaustic works – that I shared with a group of people who have inspired me over the years - teachers, former students and friends. I gave each person who partnered in this art adventure 2 small encaustic works – 1 that they kept as a small token of the love and gratitude I feel towards them and the way they have impacted my life and the second piece which they will give to one of their inspirations. It is a small way to pay it forward to the wonderful people who have helped us challenge ourselves, learn, grow and develop, sharing their special gifts and talents with us in the process.

Below you will find a short video that documents the project along with some of the processesI used to create the works. You will also find a gallery of the finished images.

Angel Variations – Birthday Project #3

Carrying on with my (now annual) tradition of creating artwork and sharing with the world in some way, this year I partnered with several other artists to collectively share our creative ideas and artworks.

Realizing that I would be spending my birthday in Italy as part of Creative Excursions – An Encaustic and Photography Adventure in Tuscany, I asked the artist participants if they wanted to join me in this creative adventure. I had prepared in advance several small panels with a black and white photograph of a stone angel tombstone photographed in the San Miniato Cemetery in Florence. Each artist worked up those panels in whatever way they wanted and then placed them somewhere out in the world for a stranger to find.

As always the works travelled far and wide – from Vancouver, to Dublin, Tuscany to Sicily. What fun to share this experience with such amazing people. In the video below you will hear some of those stories and see a number of the works created. Enjoy!

… and more to come!
