This is an original mixed-media encaustic painting, made with beeswax, encaustic medium, oil paint, graphite, and salvaged materials: sewing patterns, crumbling pieces of an old Spanish workbook and other precious rescued scraps that I've collected along the way.

The painting is 6" tall x 4" wide x 1.75" deep (15.2 cm tall x 10.2 cm wide x 4.4 cm deep), on a sturdy wooden panel. The sides are unpainted, revealing a light wood treated with linseed oil for a very subtle shine. The painting is ready to hang, with a neat wire across the back. No framing necessary! It is signed and dated by me on the back. Made in 2011.

The painting has a luminous quality, as you can see layers of collage materials beneath many coats of delicious-smelling beeswax.

I create, handle, wrap, and ship all my work with utmost respect and care. If you have any particular needs and/or requests related to purchasing this piece, I am open to hearing them and doing my very best to meet your needs.

If you live outside of U.S. or Canada, please let me know your location and I am happy to calculate the shipping cost for you!

If this painting is a gift, I am happy to gift wrap it and include a personal note, for free! Just let me know at check-out in the "message to seller" box that you would like to take me up on this offer, and be sure to include what you would like the note to say!

Please do not hesitate to get in touch with me for any reason. I would love to hear from you!
