From The Mother Lode

I made a lot of prints from what is now known in our household as the Mother Lode. With the prints I did several encaustic paintings. This first one I call 'Vintage Persian'. The picture doesn't do it justice because the colors are more intense in real life and you can't  see the flecks of gold all along the rust print.

'The Secret Garden' Some parts of the prints came out so clear with a lot of rust I decided to only add a layer of beeswax and resin to bring out the deep color even more. This one reminds me of the garden gates I saw and admired all over South Africa.
