It’s a scenario you’ve heard before. When Bruce retired (from a career in Marketing) he rolled up his sleeves and got down to the fun stuff. In his case it’s encaustic painting. Listening to him describe this art form you can tell how much he enjoys the process. It sounds like a very sophisticated form of finger painting – and who wouldn’t enjoy that?! His goal is to paint simply enough so that people must use their imagination. Most of his pieces have an abstract or surrealistic feel.
Bruce is a member of the Pasadena Society of Artists, California Art Club, and MAFA. He work has been shown at The One Show (New York Museum of Modern Art) and the American Artist Magazine Show. He has lived on Orcas for about 6 years and been a member of the Artworks for 4 years. Inside his beautiful studio near Eastsound with loud music playing he mixes, melts and paints like a mad but very happy scientist.
