Artist Statement


Artist Statement: Elizabeth Washburn


My paintings are about the color and texture I see in my life. Whether I am painting trees, cityscapes, abstracts or people, I am in love with the way light reflects off forms and the symbolism and mood color can convey. I use an encaustic (hot wax) process that I have developed for myself that blends the traditional encaustic technique with straight oil paint which leads to very interesting surfaces as well as a lot of depth and richness to the color.
I have never been tied to any one subject matter. My content is more dependent on what is going on in my life and what I am exposed to. So if I am traveling a lot, one may see the landscape or people I am encountering or if I am alone in my studio for long periods of time the work will tend to be more inward and abstracted.
With my painting, I hope to capture my reaction to the experiences in my life in a way that interrelates with people I have never met.
