Artist Bridgette Meinhold, who works from her shipping container studio in an aspen grove outside of Park City, Utah, embraces the art of encaustic painting with a focus on atmospheric, Western landscapes. She says she draws inspiration from drifting clouds, mountains, trees, and inclement weather. "Encaustic acts the part of the atmosphere, creating depth, space and time to create my ethereal landscapes." Her hazy, saturated pieces are one-of-a-kind, each capturing fleeting moments in nature—clouds pinned to the sky—the wind as it blows snow off a tree—allowing viewers to experience new sensations in nature in their own unique way.
