On the bright side, I am painting on a beautiful panel created by Rodney Thompson’s ,having prepared  the surface with encaustic gesso. I also poured wax into hand-made molds to cast butterflies and blackberry bushes, so the green leaves in the above photo project out from the surface of the art. Above, see a glimpse of this new work…
