Megan Grugan is a painter, educator and MamaCITA member (plus a lot of other wonderful things). Here is some of her recent encaustic work.
From Megan's artist statement
"I have always seen the world in vibrant colors. I have tried to paint the world that I see and in which I live. This allows me to honor the environment around me while exploring it.
Putting color next to color to create form and shape is what really drives my work. The textures of a surface combined with the fluidity of the paint helps guide and define my images.
To me, the negative space around an object is just as important as the object.”

Outside of the amazing color and detail in this encaustic work, I really respond to the motion in Megan's artwork. It swirls me in right in and is a wondrous tactile ride.
Can you pick a favorite (I can't). Though I REALLY love the shadows and light in Storm.
I'll be back with some posts about NYC on Wednesday(ish).
