Agate Water Wave


16″ x 12″

The colors in this encaustic are inspired by my Oregon beach agate hunting. Sometimes the agates seem to contain little fiery seas. The reference photo used was from a trip to New Zealand where the sands were golden and the water was exceptionally clear.
The froth on the wave really made its own flow pattern when heated with the hot air gun. This is one of those happy accidents which make encaustic painting such a wonderful medium.
