Friends decided to walk the perimeter of the island and invited me to join them for some of the stretches. They always collected discarded material found on the beaches and told me I needed to do something with it. This project combines a silver print with encaustics and, embedded under the wax, some of this trash. Encaustics are very seductive and the beauty of the beach walk shows in the silver print. The bits and pieces of balloon and ribbon, rope and netting, fishing line and string all add to the piece. It is a better place for it all to be than on the beach, and in the ocean.
