Painting with

FIRE & WAX

Commissioned whale painting for Nantucket residence.

Photo-encaustic pieces are a mix of melted beeswax & oil slowly layered over image, and fused with blowtorch.

Melted beeswax.

30-40 layers are lovingly added...

to build up the piece for texture and strength. Each brush-stroke is fused with heat.

Looking at all angles.

Installed in new home. Happy owners, happy artist.
