The bee is more honored than other animals, not because she labors, but because she labors for others. - St. John Chrysostom. Ah, and labor, she does! The little honeybee flies hundreds of miles and visits millions of flowers to create just one pound of honey. She does this for all her little sisters that are yet to be born. What a wonderful world inside a beehive!!! This painting is created with beeswax and is created to look well loved with age.

What is Encaustic?
Encaustic is an ancient technique where beeswax and damar resin are melted together to create a medium that can be used in a variety of ways. Layers of encaustic medium are painted on sturdy substrate, usually wood, and each layer is fused together with heat. Encaustic gives an ethereal feel and has a beautiful luminosity.

Will it melt?
Beeswax has a melting point of around 160 degrees so it's not necessary to keep it in a cool room, however, it's recommended to keep it away from heat sources such as fireplaces and heaters.
