Description

“Terra Firma 8”, A landscape encaustic painting by Ronna Alexander that shows layers of color built up slowly and with care using colored encaustic (wax).  When looking at it you might remember a beautiful day hiking or a glimpse of a lake over the rise.  A reminder of a fun vacation.  The wooden frame is repurposed wood from abandoned Detroit buildings.

Ronna Alexander holds a BFA from the College of Creative Studies in Detroit with a major in Industrial Design. Ronna has been consulting domestically and internationally for over 20 years. She uses drawing as her form of communication for companies across all industries. Ronna has traveled to countless places on earth. She counts herself lucky to always return to Douglas, Michigan. Ronna resides in Douglas with her husband, 3 daughters, pup, chickens and a hive filled with bees!

Ronna says, “Working with encaustics allows for the unexpected. There are opinions which I lend to my work through color and stroke, but in the end, the painting creates itself. It is an ongoing learning process for me. Allowing the wax to do what it will, building layer upon layer, watching it bring some points of detail to the surface while quieting other areas down. It’s a peaceful space for me. A place where I can engage most of my senses. The scent of the beeswax, the colors that shift one way or the other when it moves from liquid to solid, the sound of the flame used to fuse each layer into one. I love every aspect of this ever-evolving medium which is as expansive as the landscapes it represents… continually urging me to set down my expectations and be present for what is about to unfold.”
