"Reef Break"  16x16" Mixed Media (Encaustic) on Birch Panel

It makes perfect sense to me that during the warmest part of the year, I should remodel my garage, build an encaustic workspace, and teach myself a new medium from scratch. (Say it with me now), Naturally.

I had some trouble finding my way at the beginning, but even still, this practice is relatively new to me. I stuck with it (at night mostly) and have come out with a small handful of paintings I think I like. I'll never give up painting with acrylics.. this was my "summer fling".. and maybe, when the weather cools down, I'll heat the wax back up and take it for another spin.. but for now... back to my canvas.
