Fresh start

Fresh start 8x10 Encaustic by Bente Hansen

This one was an encaustic painting that I had worked on a lot.  I wasn't happy with where it was going so I put a lot of new hot colored wax on the board in very uneven areas.  I painted some on, dripped some on, threw on another color.  Just made a real mess.  When my tantrum was over I got the torch out and watched to see which way the colors flowed and VIOLA!  I like it now.

It reminds me of the foaming water between the rocks when we visit Tofino on the west coast of Vancouver Island.

Blessings for a great day.
