Artist's description:

I titled this piece "How I wish I met you there" because you can faintly see a person in it on the far right, looking outward across to the far left, as if nostalgically looking for something that is just out of reach.

I created this piece first with gestural strokes of black and pale red oil paint. Then I applied a layer of hot liquid clear encaustic - a wax based paint. When heat was applied with a heat gun, it causes the oil and encaustic to blend and swirl, creating an ethereal effect. Then, I added staccato strokes of white and gray oil paint, given the piece a multi-dimensional layered look. I finished it with a layer of shellac on the right and left sides giving it a sheen, while leaving the middle raw with just the oil paints. This pieces comes framed with a thin black frame, picking put up the black in the painting and setting it off. It is wired to hang. Note, it is heavy so you'll want to hang it on a studded part of the wall.

Materials used:

oil, encaustic, shellac, gold irridescent pigment
