"We are very impressed with Embracing Encaustic for the clarity of the photos that show the demonstrations, and the fact that there are incredible examples of artwork by many contemporary artists. These examples show a fantastic array of stylesLinda and William Womack have chosen both abstract AND representational work, proving that encaustic is truly a versatile medium that can be used for abstract representationalism and very detailed realism."

Congratulations on a gorgeous book and thanks for sharing your information, knowledge, and vision!

"You really knocked my socks off! The paintings in your book are beautiful and above all there is clarity. You don't leave out basic information that can leave the reader stymied. It was the bane of my search to find a book that wrote clearly HOW to do this, but you have succeeded. The color and richness of the pictures not only illustrate the points but they inspire! BRAVO.
