Encaustic lesson

I have been intrigued by encaustic work for a long time. I love the look of the wax and the textures are so rich and tactile. Nancy Donaldson is a master at encaustic and furthermore one of the most kind and generous people I know. She took a day of her busy life and taught me the basics. Here are some of the pieces I worked on. The sample board was the first project. Each square is an example of a different technique. It is a great way to remember the lesson, since it actually reminds you of what you did. The other 2 are two simple projects. I loved the day and want to try more!!! Thanks so much Nancy!
