And it’s day 3 of 30 Paintings in 30 Days. Since I made a Project Runway reference yesterday, I was trying to find a way to reference one of my other favorite shows, Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Yes, I know some of you are judging me now but that is ok. To find a way to tie my painting to Buffy I googled “driftwood buffy vampire” and I found a reference! It wasn’t in the show but a book and the reference is, “Just lots of sand and some white bleached driftwood. Buffy hoped Xander was right about the timing of the incantation…”

So today’s painting is white bleached driftwood (too rounded to be Mr. Pointy) in a pool of vampire blood. Oh, that sounds grosser than I wanted!

Here is a quick recap of the last 3 days. I love these in groups!

Lisa Marie Sipe first 3 days of 30 paintings in 30 days

The paintings I create during the 30 Paintings in 30 Days challenge will be included in my NATURE CURATED series which captures the essence of place by encapsulating carefully chosen mementos nature has seemingly left behind in a thick bed of pigmented encaustic wax. To create these paintings I explore the ocean shore and forest floor to find the perfect, unique objects (shells, pine cones, driftwood and stones) to embed in a luscious layer of wax. All of these natural objects tells the story of its origin, like the smooth edges on driftwood illustrates the journey it took undulating back and forth against the rough ocean shore. Each three-dimensional fine art painting is unique, signed by me, ready to hang and includes the place of origin.
