As a follow-up, let me share some other encaustic paintings that I like.
Joanne Mattera's Silk Road 79:
I like all of her silk road series, especially when they are grouped together...
She is represented by the Marcia Wood Gallery, which also represents Eric Blum. She also wrote a book on encaustic painting (see the sidebar for a link) and she has a really nice art blog that I recently found.
