Abstract and Reality in Beeswax

Sally Stap's avatar Sally Stap

I am an artist and author. As an artist I express myself through encaustic painting with beeswax, resin, and pigments on wood or card stock. This exhibit "Abstract and Reality in Beeswax" celebrates the contrast between two styles of painting with the same medium. Both pictures evoke feelings of seasons; summer in an abstract form and winter in a realistic form. Each are different, but each displaying God's beauty in color and our world. We too are each different, and appreciated and loved by God My art was featured at Central Reformed Church for ArtPrize & and at Kazoo Books for May 2015's Art Hop in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Art allows me to express what I feel and experience in a way that connects with the reader or observer. My writing is about life and faith. I published a memoir, Smiling Again, Coming Back to Life and Faith After Brain Surgery in 2014. I have had several essays chosen for inclusion in anthologies, including one with ArtPrize in 2013.
