My Darling, My Beautiful One


Encaustic Wax Painting on Cradled Wood Panel, 20″ x 20″

To capture a garden in all of its vigor, requires a balance between the freedom, patience and order required for a garden to thrive. Lynn has always loved her gardens and has a thumb of many colors to go with her passion for her flowers. This 20×20″ encaustic holds many secret nuances and subtle details that can only truly be enjoyed in person. Among those details is a symbol of new life, a depiction of one of her grandchildren, and playful pastel strokes that create intrigue in even the background. There are always new details to discover in this particular painting.



-Original Painting Size: 20” x 20”

MATERIALS: Encaustic wax on cradled wood panel.

Encaustic paintings are very durable. The beeswax and resin are impervious to moisture, making them extremely archival; they will not yellow or darken. Do not frame encaustics under glass; there is no need. Plus, you will loose the beauty of the wax and how the light plays with the painting.  If you wish to add a frame around the edges, choose one that will extend in height beyond the surface of the painting, thereby protecting the edges.

Even though they are extremely archival, encaustics should be handled with care to avoid scratching the surface and to protect the edges. Do not subject the painting to extreme temperatures; do not leave in a hot car, outside in the direct sun or subject it to extreme cold.  They do best in stable temperatures between 40-125 degrees Farenheit.

Encaustic paintings may develop “bloom”, a hazy white residue, in the first year as the wax is curing.  It is completely normal and is easily removed by gently wiping the surface with a soft cloth.  I use an old cotton pillow case.  I think it is good practice to wipe the painting surface at least once a quarter to maintain the beauty of the piece. A soft cloth can be used to buff and shine the finish and to clean of any dust or residue.

NOTE: Colors may vary slightly from screen to print.
