India inks and oils over encaustic over watercolor.
The edges of day, last brilliant glimmers of light as the sun slips down below the Northern Catskill Mountains.

Working with these layers of translucent media allows much depth, atmosphere, and light.
Recently on display at The Carrie Haddad Gallery in Hudson, New York, this 8 x 8 painting has found a new home.
