No matter the struggle
or how great the strife
there’s a bit of glow
in every life…
mine is called
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.
