I recently purchased some window coverings for my home and this was a sample piece of fabric for some blinds.  I thought it had a very interesting texture so I used it as a painting surface.  I think it adds a lot of interest to this abstract painting.

Sunny Day

I'm painting with acrylic again this week.  I'm using it more like a watercolor with layers of thin glazes because that's how I'm used to working.  Also, it's really hard for me to paint using thick paints and I like the look of thin veils of color.

I tried to give a feeling of the power of a wave in this encaustic.

Coming Ashore

I painted this over an old encaustic that had colors that I didn't like.  I do like seeing bits of those colors peeking through the upper layers though.  Sometimes, I think painting over an existing painting makes the new one more exciting because there are so many interesting, unrelated layers.
