Up for auction is an original encaustic piece done by myself. It depicts a flowering S. leucophylla. The piece is about 7.5 x 7.5 inches. (I will update with for sure measurements later). If desired, the winner may contact me about mounting options if they'd rather I prep the piece for hanging.
Encaustic (from Wikipedia):
"Encaustic painting, also known as hot wax painting, involves using heated beeswax to which colored pigments are added. The liquid/paste is then applied to a surface—usually prepared wood, though canvas and other materials are often used. The simplest encaustic mixture can be made from adding pigments to beeswax, but there are several other recipes that can be used — some containing other types of waxes, damar resin, linseed oil, or other ingredients. Pure, powdered pigments can be purchased and used, though some mixtures use oil paints or other forms of pigment."
Bidding starts at 10 dollars. I'll pay shipping.
EDIT: There's a bit more depth to the piece than the photo shows.
