The luscious wax surface doesn’t really want the dusty and dry pastel to sully it. But with the encouragement of just a little heat and the softest of pastels it can be convinced. An extension of the intimacy of my pastel work combined with the layering of my encaustics can create a lot of depth. The subjects are a sampling of a few I often touch on, an emotional gesture, the woods, water, and fire.
