I am inspired by what I see in nature, not in a realistic way, but in the way nature’s forms/shapes/colors integrate.
Encaustics is an ancient form of painting, possibly preceding oil painting. it involves painting a surface with a mixture of hot beeswax and damar resin to harden the medium. The molten wax needs to be fused to the surface of the substrate. Hot clear medium can be mixed with pigments, oils, and oil sticks. Encaustic can include collage, photography, and many types of 3d substrates as well. My encaustics here are abstract interpretations of both floral and landscapes.
