Bridgette Meinhold is a local Park City artist most well known for her large-scale encaustic paintings shown at Gallery MAR on Main Street. As practice and for studies, Meinhold paints in watercolor outdoors and in her sketchbook whenever she can. Meinhold is always making and creating in an attempt to share her love for the natural world.
She works largely with encaustic, milk paint, pencil, oil and watercolor. She draws inspiration from drifting clouds, mountains, trees, the atmosphere, and inclement weather. In her art encaustic acts the part of the atmosphere, creating depth, space and even time to create ethereal landscapes. She works from memory and her own photographs, and uses encaustic as a way to capture and preserve those moments. Just like her memory, the re-creation is not picture perfect - it is hazy, saturated, and highlighted in the way that one can best recall.
