Rooster in Encaustic

9x12 encaustic on panel
Sharon Furner ( please see Sharons web site at Fine Art America)wrote to me about encaustic painting. I haven't played with encaustic for a while. Beeswax mixed with damar with pigment added. It is an ancient medium. Heat is used in some form ( I use a heat gun) to make the wax melt and allow you to paint. I thought it would be fun to put put this up for todays work.
