Tomorrow I go to R&F Paints in Kingston, NY to apply a layer of encaustic wax and resin to my Roman Wall photos.  I have prepared 9 of them, in preparation for my show in September at RiverWinds Gallery. www.riverwindsgallery.com.

I took these in Rome with my iPhoto and the Hipstamatic App.  Love love love the effect. Perfect for encaustic treatment.
  And today I got my hardcover of  my blurb book, Roman Walls -- now on sale at blurb.com, as an ebook, or at my show.

The images are printed in Epson Velvet Fine Art Paper, which has enough tooth to hold the encaustic -- most photographic papers do not.  Then I glued them to encaustic boards with matte media, a glue that doesn't bubble and works very well.  The boards are made for R&F Paints.  This should be fun!
