This artwork draws inspiration from the geology of our planet, delving into the textures and strata that form its diverse surface. The intent was to visually capture the natural forces shaping Earth, highlighting the inherent beauty residing in its minutest intricacies. Executed through multiple layers of encaustic paint, the piece achieves a textured and stratified effect, offering a tactile experience for the viewer.

The chosen colors are a deliberate reflection of the earth’s warmth and richness, portraying the contrasts and diversity inherent in its landscapes. The panel becomes a nuanced narrative, intertwining the lively vibrancy of yellow with the calming coolness of blue. This juxtaposition not only contrasts warm and cool tones but also encapsulates the dichotomy between happiness and the inner hues of sadness. The radiant cheer of yellow exudes happiness, while the contemplative depths of blue subtly reveal an undercurrent of inner sadness, creating a poignant visual dialogue that resonates with complex emotions.

Mixed media include encaustic, wax pencil, and water-soluble encaustic paint. The title is from the Shakespeare quote from “Love’s Labors Lost”.
