Back to the waxes!

So long ago it seems since I put this piece up. I needed to get some commission work done with acrylic so all the wax/encaustic paints had to be put away to make room in the studio.

Later, a trip to Italy and moving and and and….all conspired to keep me away.

Today, I finally got to fooling around with this piece again, and I suddenly wanted to add something that I passed every day when running around the Umbrian hills. ….an umbrella or Italian pine tree that seemed a lone sentinel on one of the roads we traveled. I’m not sure what kind of pine they are but it doesn’t matter to me…it looks like an umbrella.

This photo is a little dark since it is such a gray day today. If I don’t change it, I’ll have to take a better picture with truer color. Whatever, there were plenty of these kind of gray days in Umbria as well, so it seems appropriate. This one is 24 x 24″ titled, Umbrella Pine, Umbria.
