Original Art : Flowers in wax as gifts
Encaustic Art – Mini Series
I am loving painting these small series of paintings I am doing at the moment, having just finish a set of three herb paintings for our kitchen, I was asked if I would paint some 6 x 4 paintings to be given as Christmas gifts. I have now finished the set of six paintings. Each painting is unique, three are flowers in pots / vases and three are florals : Yellow Roses, Freesia and a colourful Daisy.
Something a bit different
I am showing three of the paintings below these are a mix of flowers. They are to be given as Christmas presents by someone who wants to give “something a bit different this year”, she is giving each of them with a mini display easel, thus making them a bit more quirky than if they were just framed.
Displaying Art In Wax
Encaustic paintings, i.e paintings created in wax, can be displayed without framing I personally love seeing these smaller pictures displayed this way as the sheen and texture really shows. Art In Wax can also be framed and looks good in a mount and frame, it is best to keep the wax from touching the surface of the glass as this could effect the painting.
