The show is up.....44 paintings to fill the large space. 
 I started at 10:30am and finished at 3:30pm. 
I am slightly tired.... I think I'll sleep well tonight!
Tomorrow is the opening 2:00pm-4:00pm. 
Got some nice cheese, fruits and cookies 
but NO WINE is allowed in the space. 
We'll have fun anyway.....

"Crow's Revenge"

D.M. Le Bris Copyright 2014

I just finished the last painting for my "Dreamscapes" show.
 I thought I would play with one of Jean de La Fontaine's Fable 
"Le Corbeau et le Renard" The crow and the Fox. 
I always wondered: 
Would the Crow seek revenge after the Fox grabbed his cheese? 
I came up with this.....The fox hunt! 
I had so much fun doing this encaustic painting!
A bit of humor helps!
 It chases away the stress 
after working so hard to get this show ready!

Encaustic on 18" x 18" Birch panel

Encaustic Paintings Exhitition

My show at the Hancock Library, in NH, is coming up.
I am excited and nervous at the same time.
I am still working on one painting which should be finished by Thursday.
I am hanging the show on Friday.
I'll take some photos of the set up and post them here
 sometimes next week.
