encaustic class

For whatever we lose
(like a you or a me),
It's always our self
we find in the sea.
~e.e. cummings

my favorite place to be is near water
above are two shots
one of the luety life guard station
near my home
and the second of a light house
in pacifica, california
just outside san francisco
for the background i used
sounding maps from lake ontario
then added some clear wax and cheesecloth
and some umber oil paint to
highlight the texture
