Jaisalmer, India

This mixed media triptych is based on photos taken on my trip to Jaisalmer, India, with its colorful doors and intricate architectural features.  Mounted on encaustic board, the images were used as a base for overpainting with encaustic colors enhanced with Pearl-Ex powders.  They were stamped with wood blocks purchased in Jaisalmer and embellished with metal Hindu charms.  I won first prize in a photo contest for this work.
