Creativity Extended

After my last 3 paintings were delivered to the gallery, I cleaned the studio and with my daughter, Cynthia Hamilton, decided to take a break from creating art to creating delicious vegetarian cooking classes.

making tasty, colorful, healthy, plant based meals where no sentient being was slaughtered. 

We may think that our individual efforts won't make a difference, but the truth is that every choice we make does make a difference ---to others, ourselves and the planet.

These beautiful meals may inspire you to add plant based menus.

These will be some of the 24 videos we are planning.

A Vegetarian Party Spread

Geometric Encaustic Paintings


I just finished my latest encaustic painting, 32" x 40" .This one became geometric shapes expressing movement and volume. I didn't use tape, just a steady hand with the torch so the encaustic paint wouldn't run.

I used a hot pen to outline some of the shapes in Paynes Grey and a hearted spatula to smooth some areas.

Going through my photos, I noticed that I had made  other encaustic geometric paintings la few years ago and a couple of cold wax ones.
