Louise Bourgeois

From the NY Times: Louise Bourgeois, the French-born American artist who gained fame only late in a long career, when her psychologically charged abstract sculptures, drawings and prints had a galvanizing effect on the work of younger artists, particularly women, died on Monday in Manhattan, where she lived.

Art Materials (Hard at Work with Encaustic)

Hi visitor,

I have been hard at work adding photos to my Encaustic Resource Pages- so needless to say I have not had much time to write on Art Materials. BUT, I have added a few brands to my list- so in the meantime, look at those links and I hope to write about them soon.

Thanks fur readin'

Art Materials (Encaustic)

Hello Reader,
This week I am making this post extremely short because I am hard at work taking photos of tools and techniques for the Encaustic Resource. If you work with encaustic, are starting out, or are simply curious-stay tuned. I am also doing my best to update and share on social networking sites such as Facebook ( twitter (!/ParksArtworks) so check that out too.

Thanks for Reading and Following

Sharpe's Longclaw

Hello Reader,

I would like to take a moment and share a link in support of a worthy cause.  Visit 10,000 Birds to read about the efforts to save Sharpe's Longclaw. I particularly like supporting that which supports one of my favorite subjects (birds); and even though I can not at present financially support such an effort- just simply sharing this info goes a long way.

As alway thank you for reading

Jasper Johns Encaustic Flag Painting

Sold for 28.6 million dollars, nice to see encaustic get so much attention, and of course it doesn't hurt to be a painting by Jasper Johns.

The Encaustic is Coming!

The Encaustic is Coming! The Encaustic is Coming! The Encaustic is Coming!.......Ok, it came.

Hey encaustic painters- or interested parties,

It has been a little while since I've been able to paint (encaustic of course), with moving around and all that crud; but now its here (insert diabolical voice). So, what does this mean? Well first off I will finally be getting around to adding those much needed photos to my Encaustic Resource Pages AND I am thinking about some video tutorials (we'll see) BUT most of all- painting.

Tune in and thanks for visiting,
Jonathan Parks
