No matter the struggle or how great the strife there’s a bit of glow in every life… mine is called JOY!
I created the background of this collage using watercolor crayons and oil paintstixs: it is a mix of painted cloth and paper mounted to wood panel. Then the entire piece was sealed and painted using encaustic meduim and paint.
Encaustic painting is the process of using hot wax as your painting and binding medium. I hand dye my own cloth and make/ paint various paper designs to make my collages.
