Encaustic painting is an ancient technique using beeswax, tree resin and pigment. Due to the preservative and moisture resistant qualities of beeswax, there are encaustic paintings today that are as old as 2,000 years. With some simple care your painting could last as long! There is no need to frame this painting, the luminous quality of the wax would not be revealed as well under glass. Because of the beeswax, encaustic paintings give off a faint and lovely smell of honey.
This piece has a smooth but organic texture that reminds me of mouth blown glass- shiny and with tiny bubbles in places that accentuate the depth and translucency.
The work will come ready to hang and signed on the back.
