The technique used for these images is encaustic. A beeswax and resin mix is applied to the gessoed board. The image is painted with acrylic paint. The wax gives the paint a luminous quality. The work is done without being fiddly because that just wrecks it. The bearable lightness of being is the place one works from with encaustic!
