RIISMA Emeralda

2008. Painting. Serial No. pa080217rit. Encaustic on print. Red, ochre. 3 1/2 X 2 1/2 in.

RIISMA Emeralda is one of a series of ten prints taken from copper etching plates, and one of two of those prints I used to make encaustic "paintings" which, truthfully, are not really paintings because I only wanted to achieve the encaustic effect, the translucency over the print.

Artist's comment: Stephanie visited the Mini Art Gallery in 2013, spotted several pieces she liked, including a watercolor by Stephen Rock and my encaustic, RIISMA Emeralda. Her father was an artist and she said she has many of his works in her home, and the little encaustic and Stephen's work would fit in.
