Flight Of The Condor
Painting - Encaustic
Encaustic is the Art of painting with beeswax. I made "Flight of the Condor" by mixing pigments with beeswax and fixed it with a hot gun after the medium was applied on the surface of a wooden board.
My husband, kids and myself are all certified beekeepers and I bleach all the wax that I use for my encaustic paintings, by extracting the honeycomb directly from our hives and bleaching it naturally, with the power of the sun.
After the beeswax is bleached, I start the complete process of making the colored Encaustic bricks.
