This painting was made by layering several layers of clear encaustic wax onto a 9"x9" wood base, scratching and banging objects into the warmed wax, rubbing in some oil paints and oil pastel and then rubbing most of it away. What remains are hints of a story, and a sense that maybe some things remain hidden.
This painting will be shipped with hanging hardware on the back, but if you choose to frame it, I recommend it be placed in a front loading frame where the wax will not be pressed against any surface.
Encaustic is an ancient medium that, if cared for well, will last a very very very long time (some still exist from ancient egyptian tombs). No, it will not melt on your wall, and,yes, I will send you an "about and caring for" information sheet with every purchase, just to make it easy.
If you are able to pick up this item, shipping charges will be refunded (send me a note, push "contact" to make any arrangements)
