WHAT IS ENCAUSTIC PAINTING?

I work in encaustics-a dimensional, sculptural art form. The process of blending pigment into molten beeswax, then fusing it onto wooden panels creates sensual depth & texture. I embed found objects into my pieces-petals, branches, scraps of thread or ribbon, occasionally on old sketch.  I switch from figurative work to scenes from nature-I find the line & form so interchangeable and enjoy the interplay of incorporating a similar feel to completely different subject matter. It  keeps my work fresh.
