This pair of oil encaustic on paper exemplifies Janet Rogers' mastery of the medium. The translucent layers of paint reveal a shimmering effect of atmospheric lighting in the sky. The artworks are installed at the Medical Examiner office.
"The medium of oil encaustic and the expressionistic brush strokes layer the colors from a limited palette. This technique gives the painting a luminous quality. As the viewer changes positions or the light of a room changes, so does the painting. In this sense, the work is alive; it participates in their environment."
