I can't believe that in a year's time Randy has 400 pieces of art. Wow. While we use many of the same images, each frame is unique in it's own way. This is Revenant #400. It is an encaustic photograph mounted onto an old filing cabinet and framed using reclaimed wood. It measures 28" x 18 1/2". It is a really cool piece, and am sure it won't stick around for long.
Frame #250 Into the Wild
This might be my most favorite of all. Hard to tell from the picture but the image is covered with encaustic wax and set into the frame, almost creating a shadow box effect. Randy used old white picket fence wood and made metal corners. It is one of my favorite images and there isn't much I do not like about this piece. Almost thinking I should keep it for the house...
(Update 3/9- I did not keep it and am regretting it. It was one of the first to sell at ArtisGras in Green Bay.)
When we started this crazy art journey this past spring we set some goals. Randy told me his goal for this year, 2016, was to build 40 frames. This past week he completed number 100. 100! Wowza! It is so exciting to have happen and I am so proud of him. It has been a big leap of faith and we are very fortunate to have had a successful art show season thus far. The nerves never stop, but we are looking forward to seeing what is in store for us.
Coming up June 16 and 17 we will be in Bayfield WI along Lake Superior. I have never been there, so I am very excited to finally see that part of Wisconsin.
