Let your eyes soak in the hidden artifacts embedded in Jocelyn's first encaustic piece, "Journey To The Lighthouse - Pigeon Point." Allow the different shades of blue to create a haven of serenity. With this artwork, you can almost smell the salty air of the coast, feel breezy summer nights, and hear the sounds of ocean waves. This mug will inspire you to take your own journeys and make your own discoveries.
What is Encaustic painting? It is an ancient media using natural and pigmented beeswax. Dammar resin is used to help stabilize it. The process involves using both clear and pigmented hot wax to paint, and then heat to fuse each layer. Encaustic is the perfect medium for the original artwork for this piece as it echoes, so beautifully, the history of Pigeon Point Light Station. The many layers give the encaustic painting a translucent, romantic, ethereal and intriguing quality.
