sometimes in life, you come across relationships that just click. especially relationships where trading work for payment is lucrative for both people! i recently put on my advertising/graphic design hat in order to help out a friend with some brainstorming. in return, i was delightfully surprised by this amazing encaustic. it really is the most beautiful piece of original artwork i own (and i own a lot :) i think i am mostly drawn to it because this medium is entirely new to me. the translucency you get through the layers of the wax gives it a depth you just don't get with regular paints. jenni horne created this and you just have to go to her site to see her many other artistic endeavors.
