Precious Truths

Encaustic on canvas board

8" square


This painting exhibits the interesting sculptural things you can do in wax. I applied layers of colors, putting some of them in specific places, then built up the surface grid with many more layers including several metallic infusions. When you have so many layers you start to be very careful with applying additional heat, but you still have to fuse the surface.
An interesting truth about Encaustic: I can still go back and add more wax... and I wonder what would happen if I just let it all puddle together... hmmm.
