A new series "Rise Up" documents our return to active living with new beginnings and new ideas. 


'Time to Grow' can sit on a shelf or be hung a wall. Beeswax and oil paint combine to make a texture rich story.

Time to Grow

  • Height: 6.75 Inches; Width: 5.26 Inches; Depth: 1.6 Inches

  • 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.
