Painting with Encaustic Medium
I completed this painting last week: Toulouse, 22"x22", encaustic, Toni Youngblood 2015 c.

Betsy re-kindled my interest in painting with encaustic, which I'd first noted when studying the work of Jasper Johns during my undergraduate study of art. Here is a video of Betsy Eby's process of painting with encaustic... http://betsyeby.com/video--
