Fanning the Flame

I had a friend take some pictures of my art. Jenni did an amazing job.
I layered the encaustic on the board and as I was doing this - the ripple effect came. Highs and lows at the same time. So then I used a very dry brush and just brushed the next layers over and over - hitting the high spots of the ripples - only, fusing it between each and every layer. There are photocopied words in the lower spots of the ripples and I added other photocopies and paper . This piece turned out so well.
