Waiting For Spring
Painting - Encaustic Painting On Birch Panel
A flock of birds fly over a forested area as a cardinal rests on a wintry tree. The original painting was created with encaustics on a wooden birch panel with nails for heightened effect.
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 "Waiting for Spring" which can be readily captured in a canvas, paper or metal reproduction.
