I love the combination of red and gold… this is one of my first encaustic experiments… when I was done playing around with melting metallic crayons, that little giraffe appeared and I managed to smile at my creation… I think we both agreed, “Enough is enough, we’re done here!”

Encaustic mixed media collage: All of the papers were handmade by the artist. The collage is built on painted birch wood panels and sealed with hot beeswax. It was made using chalk, acrylic, pigmented wax, perfect pearls, oil pastel, watercolor, metal, hand painted paper and cloth.

I’m an abstract-expressionist painter… a mixed media, encaustic, collage artist who uses a non-objective, emotive style of creative expression and visual messaging. I create to survive, to LIVE with more JOY and less pain. ART (plus faith in God) is what sustains me.

    This is a very attractive piece, Angela. I Love your choice of colors; including the black also.

  • Thanks, Jacque! My BFF (Felicia) bought a very large canvas print of this piece from Fine Art America when I first went public with my art last year and so… I gave her the original as a birthday gift! :)
