Encaustic: A new adventure

Last week I had the opportunity to take part in an Encaustic workshop with artists Jeffrey Hirst and Lisa Pressman, at Jeff’s studio in Chicago.

It is a fascinating process, but in 5 days I was primarily consumed with trying to master the process/techniques of working with hot wax.  I made some progress, but have a LONG, LONG way to go.  The following are in progress experiments which I hope to complete this Fall (once I set up an area of my own studio where I can work with the encaustic materials). Each piece is 12″ x 12″.
