...New York, tonight, my own pictures.
The encaustic technique goes back as far as the XII century, so I believe. You get encaustic by mixing-oil-with-hot-wax when applying (very fast) on a thin canvas (muslin like). The painting on the back was my first Santa Barbara and also my first piece done with such technique. It's twenty one years old and for more than seventeen years has been part of Bill' decoration and re decorations for different houses and places. ¡Que viva Shangó...que viva Shangó!
