"Passion" (encaustic)

"Passion", 16x20",  was one of my first encaustics. My method of encaustics is a little different from some of the other artists,  in that I sometimes mix in some oil paint  to create color between the wax layers. I leave some oil paint on a paper towel overnight to allow the oils to seep out before using them with wax. I always use proper ventilation and practice safety with temperatures.  I also enjoy the traditional  colored encaustic wax. This framed cradle board is $215.
