Amanda Crandall

The small scale of Amanda's work plus the atmospheric quality of the landscapes evokes a feeling similar to how I feel when I actually am outside; it reinforces the sense of pristine, luminous places we should treasure. These landscapes range from Yellowstone to the Adirondacks and are created using encaustics (painting with wax), wood, and gold leaf and are very small scale (the circles are smaller than 3 inches). I've loved this artist's work for a very long time now, ever since I first began experimenting with encaustic myself. Amanda doesn't appear to have a website but you can view some information and more images via this gallery's site.
