Spark of Madness

Spark of Madness
Oil and Cold Wax
12" x 12"
Spark of Madness was accepted the 5th Annual National Juried Encaustic/Wax Exhibition sponsored by The Encaustic Art Institute in Santa Fe, NewMexico.

The show is on display October 3rd through the 31st.

This was a fun piece with brighter colors that my usual palette plus a lot of line work and scraping to top it off. Oil paint mixed with cold wax is such a scrumptious medium to play with. You layer and spread creamy paint mixed the the wax, next you scrape some off and add more in. The paint seems to seep through when you don't expect it from precious layers. It has a history all of its own.
