Original wall art encaustic wax painting on board mushrooms Buddha's gift 5

This original mixed media wax painting is part of a series based on some photographs I had taken at the local Buddhist temple. This temple was so beautiful and ornate with all its sculptures and paintings yet I found these mushroom jewels perched in the surrounding landscape. Gifts to be sure.

This is an original encaustic painting done on cradled board. The term encaustic refers to the process of applying oil paint that has been mixed with beeswax and damar resin. The mixture is heated and applied to a surface and then fused onto that surface with more heat. Each subsequent layer has to be fused to the one underneath . The translucent quality of the wax makes this a perfect medium for collage and multi-media. The painting technique can be traced to the ancient Greeks and examples still survive today as it is a very archival.

Title: Buddha's gift #5
Size: 6"x6"
Medium: Mixed media encaustic on board

The signed painting will be carefully shipped in a custom cardboard box with plenty of cushioning. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
