New work: VERGE

Verge
2010, 10 x10 inches, encaustic on panel

To create this painting, I layered several very sheer colors- starting with a clear, rich burgundy hue- under a final thicker application of paint.
"Verge" has less texture than the others completed before it.

I had a bit of a breakthrough with this piece. I really can't explain it except to say that is where I fell in love with encaustic.
