This is an encaustic and mixed media piece I did last November but I’d never mounted it. Since I had so much fun working with watercolors and encaustics for Buddha on the Mountain, I thought I’d mount this one on a framed wood panel with watercolor and encaustic wax on crumpled tissue paper. I love the colors and textures that emerged in this process.
I love my studio days – the rare times when I can spend the entire day lost in the creative flow. Yesterday was just such a day. The preparation for creating art is all part of the process. The hours spent mixing the encaustics – melting wax with damar resin and adding color are just as rewarding as the hours spent painting. I love the serendipity of it all. Yesterday was a very good day and it was all about being in the moment – ergo the name of my Bodhavista who emerged from the flow.
In the Moment
