Wistful for wax

Process: Painting in Encaustic, originally uploaded by e.briel.
Photo from 2000, painting in encaustic.

During my last year at university, I received a grant to study encaustic painting, an ancient Greco-Roman technique of painting in wax. I continued working in the medium for a few years, then turned to cyanotypes as they were more portable for my travelling lifestyle than cumbersome kilos of wax painted onto wood panels. But since settling in here, I've considered starting working in encaustic again.

I'm so happy for you: A quick skim says your life has turned into one of great beauty and peace. 8^) And I'm grateful someone finally got you to do some modeling work.

I finally got a hold of some Ad Frank CDs and they're really growing on me.
