My friend Jo Moniz is working on an encaustic for a show paying homage to painter Morris Graves (1910-2001, American Expressionist, Northwest School). She is finding it to be a fun challenge. I decided to follow her lead and try a little Morris Graves myself. This is my take on his Wheelbarrow painting. I also started a couple larger paintings that I plan to finish today. I'm enjoying taking inspiration from his ideas and exploring my own interpretation. I plan to enter these paintings in the "Morris Graves Centenary Invitational Exhibition" which will take place August 3-28 at Rock/DeMent Visual Art Space 306 S. Washington Studio #104 Seattle.
