Small Encaustics

Laughing geysers, that dance in the sun, and spread their robes like lace over the rocks”

Harriet Monroe


Encaustic is an ancient art form …

Encaustic painting medium originated with the ancient Greeks over 3000 years ago. It is a technique in which colored pigments are mixed with hot beeswax and resin called, damar.  Each layer of hot wax is “burned in” to the previous layer and there is no limit to the number of layers that may be used to create a piece of art. This process produces paintings with visual depth and color clarity.
