Page Smoak - ''I have always been fascinated by color and light and the way they effect each other. My painting journey started while living in South Florida and spending summers in the North Carolina Mountains. I discovered the vast array of color in all of nature. My career has consisted of studying oil and acrylic to a continuing adventure with Encaustic, which has become my favorite medium. Encaustic presents a daily challenge because it is an unpredictable and yet fascinating medium. My subjects are centered in nature and the way color and light play off of each other.''
