My paintings are created with the original encaustic process. Encaustic means to ‘burn’ the various layers of the applied wax. The medium used for the encaustic art is a mixture of beeswax and damar resin – tree sap in it’s rawest form, melted and applied onto subtrates. substrate, or support, are wood, boards, or other rigid material prepared to receive the molten wax medium. For many years I have been painting oil on canvas but since I learned encaustics oils are in the ‘back burner’. Working with encaustics is much harder than working with oil painting but I enjoy immensely the sensual final art pieces.
Painting oil on canvas gives me the a wide range of options to harness my inspiration thru forms, colors, textures and effects simply by mixing a few oil colors together.
