Oh how I love Encaustic, lemme count the ways:-
1. The lusciousness of the medium moving and dancing on the canvas.
2. How cathartic it is using a propane torch to paint your feelings into a molten mix of wax, pigment and damar resin.
3. How surprising it can sometimes be.
4. The shiny-ness of the end product..soooooo shiny and smooth. .
I'm happy with how this abstract piece turned out. I find that I gravitate to creating pieces like this one when I'm struggling with an idea or a feeling. Today's feeling felt like fiery layers of orange hidden under soothing waves of blue. Who knew feelings had colors? Do yours?
