Different encaustic techniques

The director of Galeria 6 will be picking up the work for the show that opens Saturday. So, I have taken some time to experiment with textures and techniques for a wall painting. I built up lots of varied colored layers, sprayed water into the molten encaustic to cause the pitting. I scraped a lot; used charcoal and a black Mexican glue that burns. It took seven days of continual work and I am not sure how I feel about the finished painting. What do you think?
