This is an encaustic piece, the process involves using heated beeswax to which colored pigments are added. I started with a photograph I took of a statue of Mary in Hawaii. Then wax was built on top. I used tools to carve designs, giving the piece great texture. Melted red wax and white oil paint are added last to fill in the negative space.
