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.
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.
