Painting - Encaustic On Deep Cradled Birch
Encaustic is an ancient medium that has recently experienced quite the revival! Paint is made by combining Beeswax and Damar Resin and melting it together. The resulting medium is then pigmented and each layer of paint must be fused to the last. In this piece, I've taken advantage of the sculptural qualities of wax. The Spoon, Eggs, Thread and the antique Hatpin are all worked in relief.
A Red Winged Blackbird's egg and a Western Meadowlark's egg balanced precariously on a teaspoon, suspended by a thin line of bright red thread attached by an antique hatpin.
