This painting is from my Wax Games series which I painted with encaustic on wood panel.  I first created many layers of highly-pigmented wax built up into curving lines and then carved back into it revealing the underlying colors. The lines are reminiscent of a hurricane's pattern which were occurring at the time in great number.  Having survived Hurricane Andrew in '92, I am very familiar with it's iconic shape and the memories it brought back each time one threatened the U.S.

Getting to Know Sandi

Sandi is a mixed media abstract artist working primarily in hot wax, known as encaustic. “Encaustic paintings are equipment intense with torches, heat guns, griddles and pots, and other heating equipment like crockpots and irons,” Sandi says. The result is highly textural artworks with dimensional patterns and shapes created in the wax. The relief quality of the artwork’s surface reveals multiple layers of color, creating a dynamic depth not seen in traditional painting techniques.
