Oil paint

& bees wax

Encaustic painting, also known as hot wax painting, is an ancient form of painting that dates back to Egypt around 100 - 300 AD.

 

(So basically, when mummies

were a thing!)

The hot wax is always applied to a sturdy surface, usually wood.

Often, a collection will be comprised of multiple wooden panels.

Diptypchs are a set of 2 painted panels, and Triptychs are a set of 3 panels. These panels are created to go together and act as a set.

The style of encaustic painting that I create is called nonrepresenatational, meaning it doesn't look like anything.

Abstract and nonrepresentational are 2 different painting styles.

The difference is that abstract is a distorted painting style that still resembles its subject matter, whereas nonrep is completely devoid of any resemblance and focuses solely on color, form, and texture to convey emotion.
