Tree Tile No. 5
Painting - Encaustic Painting On Ceramic Tile
Fields of golden wheat and salmon skies provide a bright backdrop for a solitary silhouetted tree. The original painting was created with encaustics on ceramic tile.
Encaustic paintings are made with beeswax and damar, a natural tree resin. It's an ancient medium that began with the Romans 4,000 years ago and is now making a resurgence.
Encaustics have a transparent luminosity and tactile quality unparalleled in other media. Interesting textures are made with waxy layers that are scraped, incised and fused for effect.
Enjoy the shimmering qualities of "Tree Tile no. 5" which is readily reproduced on canvas, paper or metal.
