"Ribbons in Blue"
encaustic collage
11x14
2018

Each little ribbon is hand cut from paper then hand stained. Once dried and pressed they are then suspended between layers of clear encaustic medium to create a thick translucent surface. When the wax is fused into the paper the paper shapes become translucent. In areas where the wax application is thickest there is a subtle depth to the wax. I use a torch to manipulate and fuse the wax this gives my surfaces a beautifully textured finish.

Encaustic (bees wax & damar resin), ink, paper and water media on a 9x12 panel, mounted on a painted wood panel (11x14) in a white frame (12.5"x15.5"x1.75" - total measurements including frame - no glass). Signed, dated and titled on the back. Ready to hang!

Frames are a personal preference, I frame everything in white to highlight the artwork for photographs, the white frame is included for free (and makes the dimensions slightly larger than 12x15) - it is your choice to keep it in the white frame (I think they are lovely!) or to reframe in a frame that suits your personal taste.
