Trying to make the time to paint this week has been a challenge, having constant interruptions has been an even bigger challenge! I can't decide if this is finished and I need to spend time looking at it from a distance. I love the abstract feeling the layers of wax create, and I realized today the reason I have been drawn to painting seascapes with encaustic is probably because of the fluidity in both. What I am thinking of adding to this painting is detail that will create more definition where the wave is, and possibly some 3-dimensional texture. The entire painting surface is smooth and I totally bonded with my torch when I painted this time! Using the wax abstractly is so different from what I had been doing with the image transfers that it's too soon for me to know how I feel about it.
