This piece 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 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.
