A New Departure... / by Kim Roberts

Staring into space in my studio the other day, my eyes landed on a postcard I picked up in a museum shop: Bathers on Coney Island, by Milton Avery. Without thinking I started to draw the image on my hotplate with encaustic wax crayons. Here's the result, with the original image below.
