Mark PerlmanMark Perlman painted the lovely painting above, titled “Big Boy”, encaustic on panel, 72×72 in 2010. Check out this great artist at his website (Mark_Perlman ).
He says his work represents.. “My deep fascination with the processes of change effected by time and nature’s gradual breaking down of form has developed into a profound meditation on loss and dissolution, restoration and restoral, and the interaction of mutability and permanence.  I attempt to embody life’s processes of covering and discovering the possibilities of our interactions with the natural forces of time.”
