A morning walk in the summertime in Montauk brought this surfer into my view. One of the most beautiful sports, carving the waves out. I moved away from the typical expected colors that one sees in a Polaroid and used this special film. I have this photo printed on a fine art paper and then glue it to birch which is non-acidic. Then begins the process of adding the encaustic wax which I do with a brush and then work with a palette knife until I get it to the point where I feel it is finished. The wax is polished by hand several times until it shines.
When finished I have framer use a fine maple frame and float it without glass. The beauty of encaustic wax is that you don't need to cover it with glass. You can touch the surface of the wax as it is very strong.
