11: Jeanne Rosen Sofen

Mixed Media & Encaustic Paintings Location: 2720 Smith Grade

First Snow, Lundy Canyon

Hiking in nature inspires my imagery, from streams to coastlines to forests. I layer textured papers into my paintings, for their rich tactile quality. My pastels emphasize a quality of light, and the encaustics range from nature imagery to whimsical abstracts.
