Day 27 of the Challenge

I have been posting a painting a day for the last 27 days on the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge. Most of these can not be done in a day, but this one was. It is cold wax on board. The technique leaves a matte finish and it is easy to build up textures. Unlike encaustic, it takes a day or two to dry. I am working back and forth from straight oil to abstracts in cold wax. I have gathered a bunch of tools to apply and move the cold wax. The one I use the most is an old credit card. I like the flexibility.
