Summer's end

Here's an encaustic painting that I'm working on and an oil as well. Just yesterday I really brightened up the duck painting. It was pretty dark. I wanted a happy painting with a black sky, but it worked better with a lighter color sky. It's almost done now. The radiant eye bird is coming along. I will probably add more colors to the starburst pattern. I want a rainbow effect. I will probably title this one "Refraction of Light" or something. Oh, and my beautiful typewriter from South Africa. Just because.
