THE COLORS AND FORMS OF NATURE PAINTED IN WAX

 

Encaustic, one of the oldest painting mediums, is comprised of beeswax, resin, pigment and requires heating to a molten state for brushing, pouring, carving and fusing into translucent surfaces.  

The fluidity of painting in this fragrant medium is creative, allows for lucky accidents that influence the direction and vision of work. I am often reminded while working of a summer day when the shade of apple trees caught my eye.  Sheltered from the sun, the beehives filled with the flight and work of the honey bees were a symbol of the cyles in nature, the growing seasons and the resonance of wholness, completion and relationship of plant, soil, cosmos.
