ART & A 19TH CENTURY ADOBE HOME



Santa Fe Artist, Lisa Bick invited me to her Tesuque studio and home recently and it was a treat to see her contemporary encaustic 
/mixed media work and her charming 19th century adobe home.

Encaustic is an ancient technique of applying layers of melted beeswax and resin to a wooden substrait - fusing with a heat gun or torch -  creating a luminous surface. Lisa has also mastered the technique of adding a top layer of Venetian Plaster
 which adds even more luminosity.

Her current work is for a collaborative project with  ARTIST ROSETA SANTIAGO, Larry Blisset and Ty Harris, currently showing at BLUE RAIN GALLERY @ the RAIL YARD.
