Art Description

Collage: Photo, Wax and Found Objects on Paper and Other.

The inspiration for this work comes from a journey with family to rediscover our roots in Brescia, Italy. Lake La Garda was a beautiful stop along the way.

The photography becomes dreamy and three dimensional with the encaustic medium used to collage stone, wood and rose petals into the piece. Some call the work Kinkade with texture. A wonderful compliment is taken with a smile.

The luster and finish is completely unique due to the encaustic finish. The bees wax and Damar resin are both delicate and durable. With care to keep away from extreme heat this encaustic work can last hundreds of years or longer.

Some of the oldest encaustic painting (thousands of years old) are from the Fayum mummy portraits and hang in the Metropolitan Museum in NYC.

Do not leave encaustic art in hot cars on summer days where temperatures can exceed 150 degrees during transport or in direct sunlight. Think of your encaustic work like a child, a small pet or a decorative candle. Treat it with respect and care and it will last.

I paint with the encaustic medium at a temperature between 180-200 degrees. I use a heat gun with temperatures of over 800 degrees to burn every layer into the work.

Think of the encaustic finish as a heavy duty candle with an element of resin for strength and durability. The finish is uniquely exquisite.
