This little 6"x6" encaustic painting has an underpainting with watercolor on silk paper. It will come signed on the back, titled "spring preview", ready to hang or prop on a shelf. It would also make a thoughtful gift. The sides are 1" deep and finished with a thin layer of beeswax.

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. This piece has a smooth but organic texture that reminds me of mouth blown glass, complete with an occasional tiny bubble. It also has a faint and lovely smell of honey.
