Finished the last image for an International competition

Why does the White Dove Call?
Peace Now is a competition being held in Pozos Mexico. It is to benefit Wings of Peace International, an organization with its head quarters in Florida.

Expecting the Change, 24' x 24"

Holding the Light 16"x 28'

"The Way is Not in the Sky. The Way is in the Heart"Buddha24" x 24"

It has been over 20 years since I entered a competition. It will be interesting to see if the jurors pick any of these pieces. Three of these I have posted before.

Expecting the Change

24" x 24" encaustic on board
This will be my last figurative for a while. I am preparing fresh boards with a milk paint base and will start some more "soft, stained" abstracts.

I couldn't leave well enough alone!

After posting "Holding the Light" a few weeks ago, I felt dissatisfied with it. I worked on it some more and now I don't know if I ruined it or improved it. l'll put it back in the stacks and look at it next week.

What do you think?

recent work

 Layers of Expression, 22" x 32"
Whispers #2, diptych, 32" x 26"
Embolden, 24" x 24"
Tripping the Light Fantastic, 23 1/2" x 16" This last one took off and claimed its own life
I finished several painting that I have been working on for a couple of weeks. The layered oil and encaustic are tricky because I need to give them time to cool and clear before more scraping and fusing.
