I'm still playing with encaustics. We went to a wedding at a winery in Temecula about a week ago and it was really beautiful there and the wedding was perfect. This painting isn't of any particular place. It's more a combination of different wine areas that I've visited.
This is the most detailed encaustic that I've done so far. It's not like I've done very many - I think I've painted 5 or 6 but I want to continue learning this fun medium. The sky was especially fun to do on this painting and I think clouds are especially interesting in this medium because the wax gives a sense of movement.
The balloon and wine festival was happening while we were there too and I took a lot of pictures of the hot air balloons so I might try to paint a picture of them in encaustic. That should be fun.
I work in just about every art medium I can get my hands on with my favorites being watercolor and silk painting. I love to experiment with different mediums and styles of painting. I try to paint every day and will post my paintings here as I finish them. I really appreciate any comments you may have on the paintings.
