reclaimed lumber

This week's art prompt is to visit design websites and take some inspiration.

"White Cottage"
encaustic wax 
This little encaustic piece I did was inspired by the look of reclaimed lumber. Reclaimed pallet wood is everywhere right now in design. From walls and flooring to furniture and headboards.
Fox Interior Design
My encaustic piece was created by aggressively scraping back layers of wax and distressing the surface by incising; not unlike the aggressive ravages of time and the elements on a piece of wood.
I love leafing through design magazines or pages on to get inspiration ideas. Design, trendy colors or green movements such as reclaiming lumber can be a great jumping off point for your next piece of art.
