Encaustic Mixed Media Paintings by Ruth Maude

Have you ever seen such a perfect day? | Encaustic | 16" x 16" framed 18" x 18" © Ruth Maude

My art is mixed media, encaustic. I paint with molten beeswax pigmented with oil paints.

Encaustic is the name for both a wax painting medium and a painting process that uses heat to apply and fuse the medium.

Encaustic can be smooth as glass or deeply ridged and sculptural.
