“Composition With Floating Leaves #1
Encaustic, photograph
7.5x 9”

In this photo/painting the natural translucency of water lends itself well when using Encaustic to paint with. Working with multiple layers of heated wax combined with collaged in pine needles and leaves creates an illusion of encasement and "floating" effect on the surface of the painting.
