I am not sure I will put this painting in the shop, I am not convinced it is commercial enough to sell or that anyone would want to buy it. Let me know what you think.

Sisters Encaustic Painting
This is not technically an encaustic painting because I have not added pigments to the wax, but I can't think of another word to use the describe the fact that I have added wax to a painting! I am really pleased with the outcome, I experimented scratching into the wax then rubbing oil paint into the scratch marks. It was also the first time I have used fabric over a canvas. Making it was really exciting, like alchemy, I felt like some crazed scientist who had just discovered a new element. I worked fast and spontaneously, doing whatever felt right, it was good fun.
