EEny, meeny, miny,mo.....

Having just finished creating my latest encaustic painting I now have a difficult decision to make.  To which shop do I post it?  Do I list it in Artfire.com?  What about Artgallery.co.uk?  In the end I decided to stick with Etsy for the time being and list this encaustic in my Etsy shop, On A Whimsey.

For those of you who are feeling the cold today including me I think this painting will give a warm feeling.  Hope so!!

Once I had completed it I had to put my thinking cap on to make another important decision!  What title to place on it.  Then like a bolt of lightening I thought of that wonderful group called Simply Red and realised that would be my title for this encaustic!

So, ladies and gentlemen, may I present....... drum roll please.....

Simply Red

imagePainted on box canvas this painting needs no frame since the sides have also been painted.  Measuring roughly 11.5" square and 1" deep it would not look out of place in the home or office.

 

Here are a couple of pictures showing the side angle to demonstrate how the sides have continued with the main theme and colour. left to right on wall right to left on wall

Pat, thanks so much for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. It is funny that you liked the one painting that I thought wasn't exactly a success.

I've looked at your encaustics and they are so lovely! You have the feel of the wax in each painting which sometimes is lost when artists try to disguise the wax as paint.

You almost have me convinced to try my hand at encaustics but I will have to wait until spring so I can work safely in my husband's workshop.

I love it.Always wanted to try using encaustics and some day will.Seems like they are real expensive all your brushes have to be devoted to that medium.Do you use brushes or just knives/tools? Wonderful works.

Thank you so much for your kind comments!

Encaustics are addictive!!

You can use any tool to hand. I usually use an iron, a hot stylus, hot air dryer, sometimes special brushes, a hot plate, tissues,scribers.... well you name it!
