Back at it

I spent the morning working on 3 encaustic art cards and I admit it took me a little time before I felt like I could remember how to use the medium.

As my profile states, I have been a watercolor painter for the past 20 years although lately I only want to paint with wax. Is it possible I have found a new medium?! time will tell...

I also prepped a 6 x 6 panel with wax medium knowing I was going to do another image transfer. Later, I went out and took photos at a local bird sanctuary so that I could continue my tree study series. I have chosen the image I will use to transfer on to the panel and hope to finish later, but for now it's break time.

Below is the wood panel prepped with wax and ready for me to burnish the image of the tree. I decided to change the photo from color to black and white, same as the previous 2 works I have already done on 6 x 6 panels.


  1. Robin,
    I especially like the tree card.It has a really good feel to it. Like you could lie in the grass and see images in it, like looking at a cloud.At least that's the way I see it.

  2. I agree with Alston that the shady coolness of the tree is very inviting, but I think I like the simple linework of the lovely flower even better... All three are great, and I think you may have found yourself a new medium.
