I started my day out with a drawing that would focus on things that brought me JOY… And then, as I developed activites for other surviving victims of violent crimes to use as a way to heal and remember their loved ones
(with more JOY and less pain), I thought of the basic design for this encaustic collage. For me, seeing warm colors like yellow and orange seemed to bring forth a smile… and as I thought of my son, the flowers came into view.

Creating “On My Window Sill” brought me much JOY that day; I now share it with the HOPE that it will also bring JOY to others!

The companion painting to this one is called The Glow of JOY.

This encaustic mixed media collage was made using an under painting made using acrylic, watercolor, wax pastel and ink; then I added beeswax, pigmented wax and oil to finish off the project.

Encaustic painting is the process of using hot wax as your painting and binding medium. I hand dye my own cloth and make/ paint various paper designs to make my collages.Although I’ve been using other mediums for a few years now, I just started my encaustic journey in 2011. Stay tuned, more encaustic art yet to come in 2012.

I’m an abstract-expressionist painter… a mixed media, encaustic, collage artist who uses a non-objective, emotive style of creative expression and visual messaging. I create to survive, to LIVE with more JOY and less pain. ART (plus faith in God) is what sustains me.

  • Hi Janis… I’m confused… got a rejection notice from the MIxed Media Group so I thought it had not been accepted.
