Arches and cones

Here are some rice paper paintings, all ready to be sealed into an encaustic painting. I love how porous this paper is, letting the wax fully permeate, actually changing color to slightly darker, as if it were still wet.
A church on a street that I love. This church has a perfect arched window.
An oil painting I have started. I'm painting the background first. I originally envisioned a cityscape for this canvas. Now I'm thinking a meadow. We'll see.
