CAIRNS


CAIRNS -- Wooden Sculptures

A delight of living in a temperate climate is the four seasons — they are each so different that their effect on the mind/body/spirit is noticeable.  So it follows that the different kinds of weather inspires various expressions of art -- beach-combing happens in June when I am in Maine regardless of rain or shine....making the cairns come about in the summer with open windows but also in deep winter when the melting of the wax and pigments is very appealing.


NOTE: all pieces are made of found wood, saturated with pure beeswax, resin, and pigment, and stacked on metal rod; sometimes child's blocks are used as a base. 

The backdrop paintings are optional --  oil on gessoed paper held to wall with magnets / the cost is $60+ depending on size.
