MY LOVE OF ART JANICE RHODES

Contemporary artist in an ancient medium

MY STORY

Although I paint in several mediums, I focus on doing work in wax....encaustics. It has been around for centuries, and the love of this medium by artists and art lovers is global. I love the rich vibrant colors and texture of each piece I complete. The process is involved, and technical changes become an event as I work. Truly no two pieces are alike...and no print can be made. I've studied in Mexico City, Berkeley, Santa Fe, Gig Harbor, and elsewhere, refining my work in figurative images. It is not all "work" though, so much of it is fun and filled with the joy of expressive animals...the meaning in landscape images...the beauty of an arrangement of flowers. The use of a beeswax medium has no boundaries in producing art that will last forever.

I'm at my studio working on the image to the right. This is a scene of three horses done in my favorite medium...Encaustic. The heat gun is a key tool in my work.
