Home Sweet Home #1 is the first in a series of whimsical home encaustic (beeswax) and oil paintings.
It can be hung on the wall or sit on a shelf. It looks great alone or in a group of more from the series (to form a community or neighbourhood).
The colours are bright and vibrant.

Encaustic is one of the oldest forms of painting. People often think it will melt. It will only melt if you get it very, very hot. Think of candle wax and it only melts when touching an actual flame but sunny windows aren't typically an issue. To keep it dust free, and clear the natural 'fog' that develops over time for the first year or so, simply take a clean cotton cloth and buff the entire painting - a quick 20 seconds is all it should take, do not use any cleaning chemicals.
