Work In Progress: Tribal Redux, Encaustic on Wood, 12x12 inches (unframed)

I have never shared a WIP (work in progress) before, so here goes. I wanted to share a little more about my process so here is a taste.  You can see what my work space is like and the tools at hand. Plastic fork, check. Clothespin, check...if you only saw the rest. Let's save that for another day, shall we?

Tribal Patchwork, Encaustic on wood, Approx 37 x 38 inches

I needed something substantial to fill a big blahhhh wall space in the family room. The last painting I had there just wasn't big enough. This 37 x 38 inches encaustic painting seemed to do the trick and blends well with my earthy vibe while sharing pops of color that my family room is longing for. Yes, my family room has feelings...that I project on it. So here is Tribal Patchwork....

New Tribal II Finds His Tribe

Made this guy a little over a year ago (where does the time go?), and much like many of my paintings waiting to be adopted, I never found a place to hang it. Finally, yesterday, I was reminded of an interesting spot I had been toying with. I think it works.  What do you think?
