13"x13" mixed media encaustic on wood panel with 2.5" deep natural maple floater frame
There was something about all the major shifts happening in the world in recent times that pushed me to dig deeper into myself to get in contact with the truest essence of what inspires me to create. It felt important to keep showing up despite the swirling energies of fear and doubt and to distill the sources of peace, truth, and beauty that shape my days.
I wanted to get back to my early days of creating with encaustic when I made my own paints using powdered pigments, beeswax, and damar resin so I gathered up my supplies and made a batch of paints especially for this series.
This painting features a graphite image transfer of a rose that I drew while visiting a botanical garden. Roses have a special significance in my family and I wanted to juxtapose this classic flower with a more abstract background. This piece has many layers of wax and is full of amazing texture, transparency, and intricate details. There are also collaged elements such as vintage crocheted lace, handmade paper, snippets of a player piano sheet music and gold leaf.
Comes wired and ready to hang for years of enjoyment!
