I've been reluctant to post my latest encaustics. I'm struggling through an upheaval here of my former "style" and I'm deep in the fog of not knowing. Well, that's where I usually am but this feels different. This feels like something I should keep close until I figure it out. However, tossing caution to the wind I will share these. My usual polestar (John) doesn't like the minimal ones so much and I do; what say you?

The triptych consists of 3-10x10" panels hung together. The writing was done with a tjanting tool, covered over with ivory wax and then scraped down to reveal the layers beneath. Writing is such a part of me. I will use it but must find just the right way to do so.
The baby is painted over an envelope given to me by Linda; it came from China. The baby drawing was done through carbon paper and then fused into the wax. Feedback?
