Work in Progress / by Kim Roberts

I've been working on a series of large canvases--6 X4 feet-- as part of a submission for a potential group show in Boulder. Here's #4, as I left it yesterday.

I'm not entirely sure this format is my favorite as I still like the encaustic monotype process for its free-flow form and frankly, the inability to control the outcome. I had a long talk with my mentor about issues of control in the creative process, and I realized that what I love about making art is the process of CO-creating, so that I am creator and observer at the same time.
