reliquary-shattered ice

This is a new piece. It's encaustic and satellite imagery and mixed media. Closed it's ~6" x 4" x 6.5". Open it's ~ 11" x 8" x 6". It was inspired by satellite photos of the Crary Ice Rise in Antarctica and an ice field in Greenland but diverges from both.

Couple of interesting links.

The first is a flickr pool of Japanese HDR photography - quite remarkable - they look more painted than photographic.

Second is the site for a documentary in the making about the massive disappearance of bees. As an artist working with beeswax this is obviously of considerable interest - aside from the question of what's going to pollinate all our fruits, vegetables and grains if there are no more bees.
