Topographies

One thing I really enjoy is looking through images I’ve made in my (digital) files.

These images were taken of some of my Encaustic Monotypes.

Encaustic Monotypes are created by painting with molten, pigmented wax onto a heated surface.  And then, just like regular monotypes, prints are ‘pulled’ from the surface.

The heated surface I use is one created by Paula Roland, called a Hotbox.

I took a three-day workshop with Paula last Fall and highly recommend it!

I call these images ‘topographies’.

I’ve given each one a name…

see if you see what I see!
