Party favors are a compliment to their edible counterparts. They are eye-candy, brilliantly colored. They often make garish sounds, and give us license to play and maybe drop our learned sophistications.
I often say that I want my paint surface to look edible. The process of encaustic painting, even more than oils, feels like the icing on a cake. I like the marriage of content and medium. In all of my work I love to make visual puns.
The paintings can be hung individually or as an installation varying size and shape.
