This is my latest effort at non-objective abstract. I am not sure I am entirely happy with it, but I did have a good time creating it! That is what it is about for me. It is 18x36.

Yesterday I started working with plaster on board. I took a class in using plaster in paintings few years ago from Stephanie Lee and didn't do much with it. Now I am interested in trying it again and am anxiously awaiting Stephanie's new book Plaster Studio.

Faux Encaustic

More of the faux encaustic work I have done lately and similar to what I was doing a few years ago. I have never really gotten encaustics out of my mind, even though I gave up on painting with them a couple of years ago. I just love the look. However, someone as careless as I am should not be working with hot wax. I still have some wax that I intend to put over collages, but mostly just think about it. Perhaps I will work on making my faux encaustics look more like encaustics instead!
