When I approach summer there is that feeling of sandy beaches, summer fun, and just being a kid looking for treasures in the sand. Kind of like using a metal detector only really using an electric sander and some kid radar as I dug for all things interesting or mysterious. This painting and the accompanying painting "Buried Treasure ONE" were both painted with that idea and feeling in mind. Artwork is a gel isolation coat and cold waxed for a lovely patina.

Getting to Know Pamela

Pamela’s lively body of abstract paintings tangibly exudes a cheeky happiness. Forms and colors dance across her wood panels. Repeated shapes create a mysterious yet delightful visual language. Texture is important to the artist as well. “The scratches and scrapes along the journey of making a piece of my artwork reveal so much depth and beauty,” says Pamela. When an artwork is finished, Pamela seals the image with gel and a wax coating, emulating the texture of encaustic artwork. She works out of her home studio accompanied by her two Havanese dogs.
