All the blues! Seagrass, aqua, navy to turquoise. Each little organic shape is hand cut from archival paper. 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.

This piece is wired to hang two ways.

Encaustic (bees wax & damar resin) and paper on a 1.5" inch cradled wood panel. Signed, dated and titled on the back. The sides are painted gray.
