Welcome to my February PFATT page!
"Familia" Familia is an original encaustic assemblage painting measuring 10x20 " Encaustic painting is an ancient art form , with the first known surviving installations being the Fayum Mummy portraits from the first century. Modern encaustic usually consists of a purified beeswax, and Damar resin, a naturally accurring resin from a tree native to the rain forest.
Familia is the Latin word for family . St. Valentine , was believed to have been a priest of Rome and martyred in the late third century. Ironically , he is the patron saint of more than just lovers, he is also the patron saint of beekeepers !
"Familia was done on birch wood cradle board. The 3 installations on the piece were done on masonite board.
"Familia " had a cradled back , meaning it is ready to hang. The sides are finished, there is no need for framing.
"Familia " was included in my "Wax on Wednesdays!" video series on Youtube. You can see the time lapsed in process progress of me creating this painting in the video here:
