This is an original encaustic painting, inspired by the changing of seasons, as summer's heat ends and the crisp, cool, autumn nights begin....the leaves begin to change and dance their way across the blue skies....only I wish I would get to see some good reds and oranges! The leaves are all turning yellow or brown and falling to the ground!

Composed of paper collage, seeds, lunaria seed pods, and twigs, I melt layers of encaustic wax to seal everything into place. Once dry, the encaustic creates a natural matte finish, which I then buff to an ultra soft, sateen sheen. The melting/layering nature of encaustic creates a finished surface that is somewhat uneven; thick in some areas, while thinner in others...it has a true feel of handmade in each piece! The encaustic also dries to a warm, see-through, whitish to buttery yellow glow and reveals a soft beeswax aroma.
**The twigs in this piece curve off the canvas and add a sculptural element to the painting.
