I've been a professional artist since 1994 and have worked in encaustic for over twenty years (Wow, that blows my mind seeing it in print like that). And, I guess if I keep at it, eventually I'll master it. But then I'd get bored with it and have to move on to something else. For now, it still intrigues and challenges me with it's ever evolving personality. Sometimes we cuss each other, but so far we've remained pretty good friends.
