Liberty I, encaustic/mixed media, 5x5

This September 11 marked 12 years of freedom from cancer, yahoooey!!  I am grateful.  I would not wish cancer on anyone, but it did spur me to finally decide that I wanted to be the artist I had been told I should be since kindergarten (instead of a paralegal).  I have been celebrating with these joyful little encaustic/mixed media butterflies, which are just the right size to oil paint at my desk, as time allows.  They are also featured at Bainbridge Island Museum of Art Gallery Store, which I definitely recommend along with the wonderful Max Grover exhibit, do not miss it!
