Seven Layers and More

The original idea was to take a picture of each encaustic paint layer as the piece progressed, the process of this stop and go took it's toll on the "flow" of the painting, there is well over seven layers of paint ( I won't bore you will all 7+ images, this is one, four and the final). The lesson: you don't ALWAYS have to mix photography and painting and know when to stop.
