Binta Fire (Encaustic)

For most of August we have been plagued with the constant smoke from fires to the west and east of us.  The sun in late afternoon and early evening was often a blazing ball of red.

Encaustic was a natural choice for this painting, both for its association to heat and fire and for its unpredictable nature.

  1. Wow, You really did an awesome job capturing the blazing heat of both, Liz-Anna!
    I just love the simplicity of it and that dead tree is perfect!
