Finally, some new encaustic paintings!






I hadn't been able to work for a few weeks. Two of them I spent in the States with family, but yesterday, I felt driven to get back to work. I pulled out 5 old pieces that never were satisfactory. There already were many layers of encaustic on them, so I had a wonderful base. I moved from one to another, working rapidly and not taking time on any of them to get picky. Now I am thinking that is the way I should always work. I still have plenty of paintings in the stack that never quite worked.

It seemed to be a RED day.
