painting of leavesThe art above is from a series by Shawna Moore called “Prayer Flags”, and each 20”x20”work is painted with encaustic on panel.  The title of the series refers to  Buddist prayer flags. These flags typically hang in a line  to be blown in the wind, and are thought to  spread compassion and peace.  . Shawna Moore has captured this flag on a panel, with the central image being branches and leaves.  Through multiple layers of color  and paint , she seems to  invite the viewer to mediate upon the impermanence of leaves,beeswax and color.
