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.

It was in the 1920s, when nobody had time to reflect, that I saw a still-life painting with a flower that was perfectly exquisite, but so small you really could not appreciate it.
