In My Studio - Maura Fox

Each molten wax painting below is a different landscape with water scene, and expresses awareness of fractal self- similarity in nature.

Whale Rock Atmosphere’ - features low ambient sunlight, a blustery, cool, late afternoon day; movement of swirling wind is evident in the distortion of reflections of water in the reservoir, and cloud movement in the sky.

‘Tranquility’ – portrays a partly cloudy sky, and a tranquil, early afternoon breeze moving the scattered, partially moisture laden clouds over the lily pads and water.  The moving clouds produce varying degrees of sun light; which creates changing light reflections of clouds in the water and on the lily pads.

‘Ventana Creek’ - depicts the bright sunlight, movement of air, and reflections in the flowing water amid the sunny, restful, shaded wooded areas, and rocks.  I can almost hear the restful sound of water moving down the creek! 

The translucence effects produced by the combination of layers of pigmented wax, and the torch are unique.  They are ‘snapshots’ of wonderful life experiences I want to share with everyone! 

 

Come visit me during Open Studios Art Tour Oct. 8-9 and Oct. 15-16, on 2415 Leona Court in San Luis Obispo, CA at catalog location #85.
