I spent Sunday working with Karen Raus who has an amazing studio. Karen takes amazing photographs and works in encaustics to transform them into unique artworks. I had the pleasure of joining her in working in making 2 encaustics. I stuck with my watercolor medium as the base but added Alfred Hitchcock on the left for one of his quick appearances. Who can forget his signature theme song. Once it is in your head it is going to stay there for awhile.
I loved adding the collage pieces that I made from torn paper which I painted and then soaked in gold based wax. The dark spots are walnut ink. Did I mention Karen has great art supplies. A real treasure trove for an artist.
This is a 6″ by 6″ encaustic work on a 1″ deep cradle board. Looks great hanging on the wall.
