Tamera describes this modernist abstraction as a dramatic sky with colors reminiscent of old fishing boats and black sand. She added nearly 30 layers of beeswax, damar resin and various pigments to create this encaustic painting, fusing each new layer to the last with a propane torch or iron. "There is a great deal of depth and translucency as well as texture," says Tamera. "The ability to see down through the multiple layers of wax gives the painting a luminous, ethereal, fluid feel."
