This is an encaustic painting. I made it in Rob Kinseys’ class at TwoTwelveArts. It is beeswax and resin, mixed with oil paint. The substrate is a piece of 2″x10″.
I added embroidery on cotton fabric, to reference my fiber art. I also added my hand dyed cheesecloth fabric, buttons, wood circles, and wire shapes. I made a wire G-clef for the bird’s song, and a curl for his melody. The bird is cut from a bit of fabric, and sits on a swing. The word says Tweet, the name of the piece.
If you look at the previous post, you’ll see my first try at encaustic.
