Got Grapes

One more encaustic I did when experimenting, this was done on wax paper with wax to see how they would work together, I was pleased…but the wax paper was not really a benefit, it seemed a problem in the sense it provided no support… though I liked how it turned out well enough to have it framed and mounted. My apology for the photo, glass makes it so hard to get a decent photograph.

Encaustic on wax paper so it is wax on wax? About 11 inches by 16 inches. The Encaustic really shines on this one.

Encaustic Wax Painting…Abstract maybe?

Been practicing with encaustic wax painting for the last several paintings and I am pleased with this one though it was intended to be an abstract but turned out to be a dragon.
Encaustic wax painting is an old technique which entails using color and heated wax to paint with. For this one, I started with a black background and was intending to use only three colors for my abstract…but I could not help myself and used more color and it turned out as you see it.
