I love the strong, intense colors of encaustic. I love thinking about the color and form,
positive and negative space as I paint. Yet I couldn’t escape the desire to transfer a flat
image, totally a holdover from my graphic past. I was working in the space of
representational and abstract images. Transfer applied, I felt my painting was complete.
But my pain threshold is high and my boredom threshold low so I am always looking for
new ways of using encaustics.
