Finished, I think!

Finished...I think!

I worked some more on the latest encaustic from yesterday....I think it's working better for me, both design wise and surface wise. Before it needed a lot more wax build up. As I do that, the surface values and colors changes........so just playing it by ear (no other way)..I applied more wax to the foreground areas, scraping and fusing.

As I was holding it up to get a better perspective I noticed out of my peripheral vision, the other 7 pieces hanging on the easel wall. This one looks like it could be the micro view of the first one. Weird, huh!


  1. I think it's a wonderful piece! You'll know when it's done, you'll feel it. It may be done now. Totally up to you. You are soo right about playing it by ear. :)
    Wonderful work and I intend to be back to see the changes made on it if any. I think it's wonderful just the way it is.
    Thanks for sharing it with us!

  2. Hi Angela....I don't foresee doing anything else to it. This morning I have the wax medium heating up right now to start on a couple of new ones.

    Thanks for the commentary.

  3. love love love this piece!

  4. I can't take credit....it just painted itself........Thanks, Robin!

    Playing with some collage elements now....trickier than wax paint.
