Embracing the Journey

Embracing the Journey, New Works by Judy Applegarth

Each new year I choose a word to guide me, for 2020 I chose “Journey.”  I was not sure how this word would show itself and impact me this year.  However, this year’s journey is unique and an everchanging, growing and exploring many paths.  This journey led me through many mediums including fiber art, acrylic, watercolor and encaustic.  Each path led me to another, and each left an imprint in my heart. 

Embracing this Journey illustrates my diverse art background. I find solitude with being outside on my daily walks with my dogs.  Small are moments in nature remind me that nature is thriving and reminds us to look closer.  These small mixed media encaustic works are my way for bringing nature into our spaces by capturing leaves, flowers, rocks into my works by ways of Cynaotypes, eco printing and beeswax.
