Friday Faves: Wax On, Wax Off

19 Aug

Encaustic painting is a favorite medium of mine.  Their waxy, frosting-like texture sends me over the moon.  Every time I’m in a gallery, I will be drawn to the encaustics, guaranteed.  So for this Friday round-up, I’m sharing with you some of my favorite waxy painters.

Why Stream Upstream by Mary Farmer, encaustic on canvas, 40×40

Whirl #1 by Wendy Franklund Miller, encaustic on wood, 12x12

River's Edge by Paula Blackwell, encaustic and oil on wood panel, 12x12

Interplay by Nancy Natale, encaustic with fiber, oilstick and oil paint on birch, 24x24

Do you have any favorite encaustic artists I should know about?  Do tell!  To see more work from these fabulous encaustic artists, please visit their websites.

PS– As the hubby and I prepare to move from Aberdeen to his new assignment in Grants Pass, OR AND enjoy some camping and a visit from my mom-in-law, Artsy Forager will be rerunning some older posts over the next two weeks.  Hopefully, this will give new readers a chance to see some artists that were featured back when the only people reading were my family and friends. 🙂
