Abstraction in Wax
This painting is an abstraction in encaustic wax. I was able to achieve the linear marks with a "kystka," which is the traditional tool used to make marks with molten beeswax on Ukrainian Easter Eggs. (Pysanka) I am getting a kick out of using these implements from my past in these current pieces of art and looking forward to exploring the theme further.
