Encaustic

The ancient technique of applying beeswax layers to previously toned and manipulated surfaces enables me to obtain imagery that is at once atmospheric and sparkling.  A painted scene viewed through a buildup of beeswax is lent a visceral and aerial reality; the “sfumato,” or atmospheric perspective that encaustic wax imparts is sublime.

If you are interested in any of the paintings represented on this site, or wish to inquire about or discuss a commission, please click the Contact link above and submit your query.  Available paintings can be supplied promptly; the timing on commissions completions is dependent upon schedules and other factors, but I will work to meet your timetable.
