Wax and Wane, a set on Flickr.
I promised I would share some thoughts from my Encaustic Retreat weekend. I am still composing my series of posts, but here are some photos from the weekend. Also, a poetry-prose-process post recently went up on Silhouette as a sort of sensory description about what the encaustic process embodies for me. Rich in metaphor and sense, the technique is a precious as the final product. I've finished a few pieces I started at the retreat and worked on a few new ones to gain experience and control with the medium.
