I worked on this hot wax painting on Sunday after taking Stella for a walk. It was a beautiful day following a rainfall on Saturday and was a difficult decision not to paint plein air. I've really been enjoying deconstructing scenes, but this is actually pretty close to the original photograph I took in Taylor, Texas by the railway tracks.
I'm working on a series of oils and encaustic paintings under the label, "Abstracts On A Theme". This is an 18"x24" encaustic that started as a painting of a curb and was deconstructed into various shapes. I really like paintings that have a dynamic, such as a push and pull, effect.
