  Encaustic Paintings  

This series is painted in encaustic, a wax medium with a unique surface that can be blurred and ghostly, or buffed to an enamel-like shine. I've used the inherent qualities of wax to layer transparent veils of color. The effect is fluid, as each layer of wax is captured in its liquid state.
