Rocks and soil in encaustic form the base of this painting which are then overlaid with a clear drafting film (mylar) on which a white and cream encaustic waterfall has been painted. The waterfall is suspended from the birch cradle from redwood bars, casting shadows on the rocks beneath.
The artist has specially treated the drafting film so that encaustic adhers -- an unconventional substrate for encaustic. The material is chosen to produce clarity and luminescence to the water and well as give mysterious shadows to the piece. .
