This painting is called Creation of Colour but I actually should have called it Whirlwind life. I was feeling my life was in a whirlwind when I painted it. March 2017 This is currently on display at the Belleville Art Association Gallery.
This is my first attempt at using encaustic medium and ink. I loved working with these two mediums.
When my father, Charlie Kammer, was a boy in the 1930s he was told by his grandmother, "Charlie don't go in the woods because the Purple Whipple Tree will get you". His grandmother was trying to keep him safe. As a father expanded on the story and added characters like Gus the groundhog, Burly bear and the fish with the pink eye. These stories were the inspiration for this collaborative piece that mother and daughter Pat Kammer and Judy Wilson completed together in April 2016.
