6"x6" mixed media encaustic
The path leading up to this old stone farmhouse is overgrown and surrounded by a meadow that changes with the seasons. Sometimes it is green and bursting forth with flowers and in the fall it retracts some and takes on the deeper palette of autumn. It always feels like stepping back in time rounding the bend on a sunny day and coming upon that sturdy old house and protective tree.
This painting includes encaustic, pastels, oil paint, photo transfers, handmade paper, and gold leaf. It was created on a cradled birchwood panel 1 5/8" deep and comes wired and ready to hang. The sides are stained an antique gold.
