You can see I’ve gotten comfortable with the encaustic process again, as this little painting (which I love), has gotten more away from abstraction than the three previous ones (below).

This one was painted into rough watercolor paper mounted on masonite.  This paper really soaks up a lot of the wax paint, so many more layers were required to achieve the effect I was looking for.

I’m a secretive bastard. I would never let anybody watch me painting… it would be like somebody watching you have sex – painting is that personal to me.
