I don't know what encaustic art is but your works are gorgeous! I love the forest one the best. So much movement in each piece and the colors are brilliant.

Beautiful pieces. It's the first I've heard of this kind of art. I usually don't like abstract art, but this is more like impressionism. I can really "see" the images that you've names them. Could you tell a little more about the process? Please.

"Down into the coral" made my eyes just about pop out of my head. The colors are so vibrant! They're gorgeous.  Shocked  Grin

Have you considered posting a tutorial?

Well, what can I say?  Thank you all so much for your wonderful comments - Jatoha, great article showing the basics of encaustic art too!

You can see it is easy to play in this medium.  You can use all sorts of implements to create different textures.  Even a hotplate, a hair dryer, the list goes on as far as your imagination will let you!
