As spring approaches, I always feel a need to refresh my house. I was tired of looking at the old painting in my bathroom, and thought I'd try something new and spontaneous, and I love the result! I think it suits my bathroom, as it reminds me of water and waves and the upcoming Spring thaw. I've included a couple of photos of it to share. (Along with my sidekick Oliver who appears very unimpressed!) I'm looking forward to experimenting some more with similar paintings, and thinking of incorporating encaustic for a richer, layered opaque effect.

(For those ceramic aficionados, I've listed below the makers and websites of the pieces in the display niches.)

Not too sure Oliver is a fan but it looks fantastic!

Love the new experimental painting. What is the media you used? Is it encaustic painting? Love the effect you achieved. Best of luck in more paintings!
I'd like to add some images of your work in my blog. As a fellow ceramist, I find them inspiring.
