Here’s my entry: “red”, 24″ x 24″, encaustic and oil on panel, 2013.  It has several layers of drawing and painting using lots of red!

Red is such an emotionally charged color, the strongest of them all I think. The hot color of blood or anger in western European cultures, but I prefer the notion from eastern cultures that red signifies good fortune or, as with the Australian aboriginal culture, the land and the earth.
I’ll post images by the other artists in the next post.
