"Libellules"

D.M. Le Bris ©2017

I have a small pond in my backyard. 
During the summer I can enjoy watching the delicate dragonflies 
flying gracefuly above the water. 
 They come in many shape, form and colors. 
They were my inspiration for this encaustic painting I titled "Libellules" 
which is the French translation for Dragonflies.

"Simplicity"

D.M. Le Bris ©2017

A single red flower in a green field
would attract anyone's attention.
An elegant and fragile red poppy
is definitely an inspiration for a new encaustic painting.

"La Belle Tour"

D.M. Le Bris ©2017

In my studio I was thinking of my youth, 
Paris and the Eiffel Tower.
Then I decided to create this fun little painting.
Memories flowed in and out...
It made me smile!

"Coquelicots"

D.M. Le Bris ©2017

Poppies are  elegant but so fragile while dancing in the wind.
"Coquelicots" is their French translation.
Red flowers sparingly dotting the green landscapes
 were a familiar site in my country walks, during my chidhood.
Those memories were my inspiration for this painting.
Looking at it, I can actually feel the breeze caressing the petals.

"Welcoming the Moon"

D.M. Le Bris ©2016

After an early walk in the mountain 
I was inspired to create this painting.
The air was fresh, the moon still in the sky 
and the yellow flowers seemed to welcome the morning, 
saying goodbye to the fading moon.
This painting is now available on Daily Paintworks.

"Le Hibou de Tonton Francois #4"

D.M. Le Bris ©2017

Just finished this painting for the open studio
on Columbus Day Weekend. 
The imagery has a history close to my heart.
As a young man, my uncle Francois had an owl as a pet. 
He adored it just like he loved his bee's
- hives were hiding in the field. 
This painting was done in his honor. 
I have done another version of this painting
but this one is the largest so far.

"Earth Tapestry #6"

D.M. Le Bris ©2017

I worked all winter on this encaustic painting,
looking to create atmosphere and texture. 
It reminds me of an early morning, 
foggy day on my pond.
Herons always come and visit, 
quietly inspecting the water for tasty morsels.
