Most of my encaustic paintings are done using a single color of wax. The thickness of the wax on the paper and the various designs etched into the wax often give the impression that I’m using several different colors. Not so.
And I generally pick the “exciting” colors to play with… the blues and the reds, sometimes the greens. But for this one, I thought I’d play with the black wax. Surprisingly, I love the way it turned out.
To me, this looks like piles of extremely large rib cages hidden away in a cave. I’d love to know what you see in this painting!
