DYAD #1 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.
