This is my latest Encaustic/Mixed Media piece. The background was done with layers of hand-painted papers and inks. The trees were created with acrylic ink, as were the leaves around the trunks. After the encaustic wax was added, I scraped in additional branches and marks.
I decided to add these words to it, "make memories". I see so many people on their phones and just not making connections face to face anymore...truth be told, myself included. Even at events, vacations, or something as simple as spending time with family, some moments, some memories, are lost because we are trying to capture it in a photo on our phones. I wanted to remind myself not to take these moments for granted, to actually live it and cherish the memory of it.
This piece is available. It is a small, 8 X 8, that I've framed in a simple, black floater frame. Feel free to send me an email if you have any questions, comments, or are interested in purchasing.
Today, I encourage you to live in the moment and make memories!
