New Painting

Just completed this small piece. Playing with the layers and having it hang over the panel edge. I am working on some 8x8's that have even more thickness...having fun with these.
E Sheppell "California On My Mind" 2011 12 x 9 acrylic on wood panel


  1. the yellow brush stroke is almost sheer; it appears to float. very nice.
    i clicked to view it larger, i see what you meant when you said you're "having it hang over the panel edge"! the thickness and texture seem to need each other in this painting. i hope you do more of these! painting in thick layers can be very liberating.

  2. Thanks Stephanie. It is liberating. I feel like I am approaching the paintings in a more aggressive way. It will be interesting to see where these go. Looking forward in seeing more of your encaustics!

  3. delicious paint surface Elizabeth!
    Mmm ... the joy of paint!
