It is serendipity to discover an artist online who turns out to live in my part of the world! The art of  Dora Ficher compels me with the color and texture and vibrant energy, almost buzzing with the bees that bring forth the medium of encaustic, beeswax.

I checked a book out of the library, Encaustic Art by Lissa Rankin, and can see why I am attracted to encaustics like Dora Ficher’s. The colors have the same intensity as the glass I work with, and wax allows for an element of translucence, which again evokes what I love about glass.  Dora’s photo of a vendor table at The Encaustic Conference in Provincetown, MA, makes my mouth water.

I was happy to find Dora Ficher at Pinterest as well, because her eye for color makes for a treasure trove of images.
