This piece is inspired by summer. I'm very happy it's summertime!
For this piece I really worked on layering and building up the imagery and wax. I did it in three different sessions so I could take more time with my ideas and technique. I've learned that it helps me to stop the process for a while and start fresh later. Even though that means turning everything off and letting the wax cool down, I think it helps. It gives me time to plan more and not get swept up in the "heat" of the moment with the hot wax.

(I just discovered these tiny-size encaustic boards - 2.5 x 3.5 inches. It's nice to make really small art like this! You can just play without worrying about messing up a big board. It feels very free.)
