Bridgette Guerzon Mills: Lightness of Spirit, encaustic mixed media, 5x7 inches, framed to 8x10 inches
Lightness of Spirit is a painting of a Dark Eyed Junco that was part of the artist's 100 Days of Birds series. The original gouache painting of this sweet bird was then incorporated into an encaustic mixed media piece that also includes fabric. The canvas panel is mounted on matboard and then finished with a floated cut mat and framed in black wood frame. There is no glass as encaustic is best preserved without glass.
