This is the first encaustic I’ve painted directly onto the plywood panel, with no intermediary watercolor paper.  There is so much visual depth to this that cannot be seen on a computer monitor!

The artist’s world is limitless. It can be found anywhere, far from where he lives or a few feet away. It is always on his doorstep.

  • The swirls of cloud look so good in encaustic. Probably much better in person too where you can see the depth of the medium that photos can rarely capture. Great drama!
