Breaking the Rules

Breaking the Rules

Encaustic painting on oil panel.

8" square


The title refers to the stage where an artist becomes proficient in a particular technique, and from that point forward the artist knows which rules must be followed and which ones can be broken, for artistic effect. In Encaustic painting one generally tries to eliminate pin holes in the surface, which are caused by air bubbles breaking through the hot wet surface. In this case I exploited those bubbles and even added more on purpose.
