encaustic class

for this months class i was still in the recycle mode
going through my studio to find unfinished canvases
i found plenty that needed to be completed or scrapped down and reused
the above canvas had layers of texture
once i hit it with the iron i soon realized what was hidden beneath
a collage of old maps and book pages
this inspired me to dig through my stash of found objects, metal and embellishments 

details showing the exposed maps and book pages ( top and bottom left)
texture (bottom right) and
new elements of toothpicks, wire , copper sheeting and rusted washer


  1. Nancy, your work is truly inspiring!

  2. i can hardly wait for my class discovery with this new material
