I spent Saturday at an encaustic workshop with artist Maria Madacky. Some of her work is available on "Absolute Art". We worked on a still life in the morning and in the afternoon, I opted to just experiment with this medium. The photo above is the result of my morning effort. I am smitten with the textural possibilities encaustic painting lends itself to. This was done on the rough side of a piece of masonite board (17x20) . I added a few pages of Japanese text in the background that is modestly visible if you were to press the photo to view it large.
