Collaboration with Eileen

My sister Eileen (what do you want for breakfast) P. Goldenberg is a multitalented gal. She works in encaustic as well as a ceramic. See her website here. We are starting to collaborate...she is building the boat forms, and I am painting them. Yesterday this shipment sailed into my studio.

Today I began to paint.
I'm pretty excited about this new series.



The oars will be wrapped with my text
I'd love to have your feedback.

They're beautiful! They look boat-like but also a little remiscent of bugs or coccoons with the sticks coming out. I've worked a little with encaustic on ceramic - I'm curious how you fuse the encaustic without it all sliding off the three-dimensional form.

Hi Deanna

I fuse them really slowly with a torch I got from R and F paints...it's like a creme brulee torch.

I love boat 4. Do you still have it? I'd love to see it in person. Let's talk ...

The collaboration is great! Somehow I keep expecting Jason or Tristan to set off on a journey but these boats are , without a doubt, setting sail for feminine journeys.
Keep up the good work.
