Lately I’ve been working on some new photo encaustics and have been pretty happy with the results. What are photo encaustics? They are a combination of printed photos, beeswax, texture and pigments – a mixed-media alternative photo process. It’s a very tactile process compared to the many hours that I spend behind the computer processing digital files. I quite enjoy it. I have been using wood substrates – mostly lumber scraps and some cradled boards too. It’s  time consuming and fraught with all sorts of potential results and they are not always good. I have melted and scraped much wax off of my boards. And melted and brushed some more. The end results are often unexpected but always interesting. You can see some of these hanging at the Winthrop Gallery.
