Garden Fragments B

Encaustic Painting

This unique artwork is created with encaustic paint medium comprised of raw beeswax, Damar resin (a natural tree sap), and oil paint for color. Each color is mixed from the basic medium that has been heated on a skillet to a liquid.

The technique of layering wax with templates and scraping away to reveal the color and texture beneath allows for surprises and an ever evolving painting. To finish each one the artist adds detail by incising lines, and applies an oil paint mixture to the surface to accentuate the texture.

In love with the outdoors, these pieces are a reflection of the artist's world in California. Color and more color, and the best way for her to capture nature is with texture. You can even smell the lovely honey fragrance in each painting!
