Encaustic painting on oil panel.

8" square


This painting represents the magical changes that occur when you're applying hot melted waxes and things change while you watch. You could start with a particular image in mind but the wax also has a mind of its own so you often have to just go with the flow, so to speak.
I built up the background with many layers of different colors, then carved and gouged the wax rows which revealed bits of the colors at different depths. It went through numerous changes in the process, hence the title.
