Martha Baker, Encaustic Painting on Panel – Desert Rhythms IX

With her move to Santa Fe in 2006, came an opportunity to study the art of painting with hot wax. Encaustic painting is an ancient method of fusing melted beeswax and resin. The luminosity, depth, and richness of color achieved by working with this process is difficult to duplicate in any other medium. This one of a kind original work of art measures 12″ H x 12″ W x 2″ D. Martha shows her work locally at Owen Contemporary Gallery.
