Encaustic Painting from Vanessa: Mt. Tam

Look what Vanessa made for me:

Encaustic painting on wood panel

She used a Tom Killion woodblock print of Mt. Tamalpais as inspiration for the painting. I found Killion's work in an article Bay Nature did on his woodprints and passed it on to her, not knowing that I might be the lucky recipient of her work. I believe this is Vanessa's third encaustic work since she started heating wax and mixing pigments.

She's thinking of setting up an etsy shop. Don't you think she should?

Damn. That is some hot wax.

Well, it's actually my fourth piece. But, of the four pieces, I have only kept one. Still thinking about the etsy shoppe. I figure if I spell it that way, it will be even cuter.
