  1. Hi Marilyn,

    I'm finally catching up on checking everything out here – I was really fond of this series when I checked your site before & it was great to see this piece featured. I'd be really interested to see how this looks in person; for some reason it surprised me a lot that it was encaustic with all those fluid areas of overlapping color — the way they're intermingling reminds me of the patterns you might get with watercolor.

  2. Thanks, Annie! My tornado series were some of my first encaustic paintings. There's a lot of melting and blowing the paint around with hot air, which causes the mixing of paint and the fractal kind of quality (which shows up especially in this one). The surface is usually glassy-smooth. I'm practically self-taught in encaustic, and I've seen that most artists don't go this far in the melting process.

    See ya in the blogosphere!
