I had a delightful day working in encaustics with a wonderful photographer and artist, Karen Raus, famous locally for her Beach Walker series. After applying watercolor and coating with wax, I made some paper shapes that I painted and worked into some gold colored wax and applied to the painting.
This is an 8″ by 10″ encaustic on 1″ deep cradle board. It was great to work in a different medium and also a delight that Karen’s husband, Bill, had just completed running heat into her studio. Bill is from upstate New York and I really appreciate his sense of humor. Reminds me of home.
