Laguna Beach Encaustic

Laguna Beach Encaustic
Image Size 5" x 7"

Well, I completely forgot that today is Monday until 7:20 PM.  That's how crazy things have been around here.  Fortunately, I had painted this one last week so I'm not missing my self imposed Monday deadline although I'm probably posting it too late for those of you that subscribe to my e-mail delivery to get it today so it will come on Tuesday to you - but it was finished today.  : )

Not that any of you probably care about it but I would have been really mad at myself if I had the painting finished and just forgot to post it.  After all, I've been posting a painting a week since 2008 and haven't missed a week, no matter what's going on in my life, so I don't want to miss one now!

I admit, it's not much of a painting, but it's done and as with all of my paintings, it was a learning experience.  I've done this scene so many times but never in encaustic so it was fun to see how different this looks from the other mediums that I've used in the past.


  1. You really got the look of those crashing waves beautifully, Nancy. I'd love to see comparison pieces when you do the same scene as a previous piece. Especially since you are doing them in encaustic now.

    1. Thank you Sherry. If you go to my website, there are a couple of paintings of this scene listed under "Oils".

  2. Congrats for staying on track! I remember this scene and it is a gorgeous one. With the encaustic the water is so,tangible you can just touch it. I have to see one of these encaustic works up close as I am curious, there is so much movement and texture. Liking it very much.

  3. Beautifully painted, Nancy....

  4. Dear Nancy - I admire your dedication as well as your superb art. This is really beautiful. So glad you shared. Thank you. Hugs
