this process thrills me. encaustic. beeswax. tree resin. pigment. and heat.
well, it doesn’t thrill me all of the time. but, there are so many aspects to it, it keeps me intrigued. even on a not so energetic day i can progress in some small way. making wooden panels. sanding. gluing. making medium. cleaning up waxy messes. scraping wax off of the floor. cutting and collecting collage pieces. watching wax melt. organizing and grouping panels. figuring panel sizes and counting inventory. planning frames. cleaning more wax off the floor. melting more wax.
oh, and then, there is the making art part. i love that process too.
