Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

When I completed this abstract I realized that it looked somewhat like the background in a famous painting by El Greco, thus the title. I began with a pale orange under layer, then (although you'd never know it) I placed a crocheted doily over it, painted the spaces with cobalt blue, but once the fusing began (a necessary practice with encaustic), and my introduction of additional colors (wine, purple, silver, white), the drapey forms showed up. This looks (I have to admit) stunning in its gold grande floater frame, that adds an inch all around, but still a small painting at 10x10 inches. Small but imposing (that is, interesting and dynamic). Encaustic is highly-pigmented pharmaceutical grade beeswax that's strengthened by the addition of damar resin that makes the final work hard and give sit a natural sheen. It is archival and will keep forever unless in an environment about 150 degrees F.

Materials used:

encaustic paint, powdered pigment, oil stick on cradled panel
