Here is a beautiful work of art done with Encaustics, Oil paint, and Lapis Stone. I wanted to convey the power and beauty of the ocean. The painting is 9 X 12 painted on a birchwood panel. Encaustic art has been around for centuries, and is a beautiful, colorful, and will last forever. The beeswax is a natural preservative for paint. The process is difficult, many layers of paint and wax are used to create the painting. My Title "Lapis Blue Wave" The birchwood panel is ready to hang on wall.
