The black voice of death | Leonie.e.Brown ART Gallery

Sometimes I despair, and I wish God was a Fairy God-mother with a magic wand. Just magicking it all away. But unfortunately, He doesn’t. He leads us into deeper waters so that we can learn to trust Him in the Storm.

If you grew up in an alcoholic home, you never know what to expect from one day to the next. When one or both parents struggle with addiction, the home environment is predictably unpredictable

The surface of encaustic is unique, and the luminosity, light, and depth of the surface is what draws collectors and curators to the form. Wax Art, Flag Painting, Jasper Johns, Brown Art, Circular Pattern, Encaustic Painting, American Artists, Lovers Art, Art Gallery

A Chat with The Artist | Leonie.e.Brown ART Gallery

Weeping might last all night, but JOY comes in the morning. A very personal and close interview with the artist. Learn more about her story and why she paint what she does.

Her father was a violent alcoholic. She grew up being given too much responsibility at a very young age. At the age of six, she stood on a chair, in front of a cole-stove cooking breakfast for her younger siblings.

I was born an orphan in a house full of orphans. According to Wikipedia, an orphan is; someone whose parents have died, are unknown, or have permanently or emotionally (sometimes unintentionally) abandoned them.

#onmyeasel  Absolutely loving the process. I had to tear myself away from the studio at 5pm. (Home and hubby waiting)  It's been so long since I've really enjoyed and been excited about my work. This is something new for me. I haven't focused on figures in a long while.  My initial focus has always been abstracts. I'm still planning on doing some more abstracts. I'm guessing that the abstracts will also be influenced by the encaustic process.

Why work with encaustic?  The process of painting with encaustic's is very different from oil or acrylics. With the later two you make use of mediums to keep it wet or speed up the drying process.  You can blend and paint over. Wipe off or pat down.  Encaustic is a totally different aproach .Instead of working with mediums, you work with heat and cold.  The wax gets melted and then applied whilst in a melted stage. It dries almost instantaneously. So there is no second or third brush stroke… Encaustic Art, Off The Wall, Brush Strokes, Acrylics, Third, Wax, Stage, How To Apply, Cold

No...the bird is just for fun.  Today was hard for my back. Four hours of scraping back the background to its bottom layer.  Yesterday I noticed cracks forming in the surface. The original painting was on canvass. I've had the canvass stretched and glued to a wooden surface to prevent any future cracking. Wax does not like to bend.

It's a new dawn, a new day and a new year! It's a very hot and sweaty 32 degrees Celsius inside the studio.  I've decided to work over an old painting that didn't sell. Yes! That's what happens to the old ones. They either get donated to charity to be auctioned of for the charity to get money, or I destroy them by painting over them.  This is an older encaustic that I am now reworking.  Today is my first day back at the studio after a 4 month break.

The surface of each painting is made of of layers of wax and oil. Each layer is has to dry before the next one can be applied. The layering gives the work a three dimensional quality. A sense of seeing through the top layers into hidden messages below. The layering gives the work a softness and richness that invites the viewer to look closer and to experience the satin smooth surface through touch. #southafrican #capetown #capetownartist #southafrica #instaartist #instamoment…

OFF my Easel: Camping with hubby on the very empty Breede river. Water holes only here and there. Just had a lovely "au natural" swim after a 3km walk. Very out of practise with our camping skills, since we haven't camped for about 3 years. It's still the best way to see and experience nature.

Sometimes I despair, and I wish God was a Fairy God-mother with a magic wand. Just magicking it all away. But unfortunately, He doesn’t. He leads us into deeper waters so that we can learn to trust Him in the Storm.

If you grew up in an alcoholic home, you never know what to expect from one day to the next. When one or both parents struggle with addiction, the home environment is predictably unpredictable

The surface of encaustic is unique, and the luminosity, light, and depth of the surface is what draws collectors and curators to the form. Wax Art, Flag Painting, Jasper Johns, Brown Art, Circular Pattern, Encaustic Painting, American Artists, Lovers Art, Art Gallery

Why work with encaustic?  The process of painting with encaustic's is very different from oil or acrylics. With the later two you make use of mediums to keep it wet or speed up the drying process.  You can blend and paint over. Wipe off or pat down.  Encaustic is a totally different aproach .Instead of working with mediums, you work with heat and cold.  The wax gets melted and then applied whilst in a melted stage. It dries almost instantaneously.
