Encaustic Minis 2016

Series 3

These small encaustic paintings are done on 4x4 in. heavyweight illustration boards and each are mounted on a signed 6x6 acid-free matboard. The illustration boards are made of 100% cotton fiber, acid-free paper.

I used tar and gravel to get that deep black hue and remnants of old books for collage materials.

“Our lives are but a little while, so let them run as sweetly as you can, and give no thought to grief from day to day. For time is not concerned to keep our hopes but hurries on its business and is gone” – Euripedes
