These paintings are done with hot wax, layered and fused on a rigid support. (See more on the encaustic technique) I enjoy exploring all of the creative possibilities of this technique. As with mixed media work, this medium is very receptive to layering. I enjoy embedding photos on thin papers and other ephemera, and layer with both opaque and translucent hot wax.
