Pop the Strate

Lollipop 3, 10" x 10", paper and encaustic on panel.

(Wherein Lollipop monotype was glued to a panel and used as the substrate for the encaustic. The Saint-Armand paper worked very nicely with the encaustic. Love the stuff!)

Hey, Spottie!

Sun Spots, 10" x 10" encaustic on panel

Two more pieces from this weekend -- Tube and Water  -- in the Gallery2010. I am thinking of filling the thin incised lines in Water with a pigment stick color. What do you think? Should I use a compliment (an orange or a yellow orange) or an adjacent (a blue or a green)?
