I really fought with this painting.  My original concept was completely different and I wasn't happy with where it was going.  I added different colors thinking, "yeah, this will look really good", and being disappointed again...and again.  

The nice thing about encaustic is that I can continue to add wax and it just gets better and better.   For this painting, I used thin veils of color as I worked so the previous layers could be seen and added to the final result.  I am finally happy with it!

Here's another skinny painting but this time it has a horizontal orientation.  This is a commission.  My clients liked a painting that I had painted that is similar to this but much smaller (10" x 14") and painted with watercolor.  They had a specific spot for this painting and a specific size and chose oil as the medium.  I love painting something that fits a special space in a client's home.

I love a long, skinny format for paintings!  This has a lot of depth that isn't showing in the photo.  I painted this to enter into a juried show.  It was accepted into the show and sold soon after the show ended.
