Living on an island in the Pacific Northwest is fantastic. The natural beauty of this forested haven amazes me daily.
Much of the wood is too large or too small but this time I found a piece just the right size. I decide to create something fun.
I started by painting white encaustic beeswax on to the wood.
I added some image transfer trees to the white encaustic. I then hammered some small black nails around the encaustic paint. I finished the painting by wrapping a bit of rusty wire around the nails.
I really like how the texture of the wood, wax and wire come together.
