encaustic painting on cigar box

This painting is a mixture of an old photo and wax pigment fused, my father and myself with part of a plow in the picture.  The horse is not in the old photo unfortunately. The red pigment symbolizes the red clay of South Carolina that my father  worked so hard.  One could say this painting is an  exploration and reclamation of my past history of childhood, (finding the positive aspects).
