"Cave Dwellers" was created by layering and fusing wax with the addition of pigments and oil pastel.
Primitive art continues to be a strong influence on me but mostly I just want to follow my heart and make essential marks that convey a story.
I have been following a private facebook group of encaustic artists. I rarely post in the group but have learned an incredible amount of information from everyone. I don't agree with some of what people are sharing but I have been exposed to such a diverse group of artists, it's almost like taking a class!
Below, 2 recent encaustic demo paintings, done at the same time with the same color palette using different techniques, neither of these pieces follows my "less is more" mantra, but I am working toward breaking a habit and it will take time.
