Sunset #1
Encaustic, Image Transfer, & Oil Pastel on Cradled Panel
8" x 10" (20.32 cm x 25.4 cm)
December 2008

Each day that I live in Maine I am in awe of the simple beauty that is a silhouette of a tree or group of trees against the unbelievable colors of the sunrises and sunsets. The reds and pinks are the perfect backdrop for this many limbed tree. The image of the tree is a transfer of one of my photographs onto the encaustic.

What's encaustic painting?-- Encaustic painting is the use of beeswax and damar resin melted together and combined with dry pigments to create a painting medium. This paint is applied hot (not a cold paste) and manipulated with a direct heat source. This makes for a lovely layered image into which objects and photographs can be added.

I use only the finest ingredients and make it all myself from scratch which will ensure a long lasting painting. Living with and taking care of an encaustic painting is much like any other piece of artwork-- keep it out of direct sunlight and heat. You may want to take a clean white cotton rag and buff the non-photo areas, if need be (that will keep it shiny). That's about it!

This is a cradled panel with attached hardware/wire! This painting is signed and titled on the reverse.
