12x12 Abstract Wall Hanging on wood panel. One of the things I enjoy most about Mother Nature is her trees. The tree sizes, shapes and textures are a testimony to her symbolic meaning of rootedness, stability, vitality, growth and protection. The process? Here I have taken natural Birch bark and incorporated it into this piece as well as created the frame using the same bark which helps to balance the overall look. This gives the piece textures of ruggedness and inherent masculine qualities. I have also used fiber eyelash yarn, natural feathers, as well as dried pressed flower and plant leaves. These provide the softer feminine qualities. The colors are muted, soft and neutral. The fusing of the encaustic wax to the piece was done very carefully and patiently with only a minimal amount of swearing caused by tiny burns, all the while using a heat gun and blow torch. Encaustic wax, (hot molten wax made by combining Dumar Resin and beeswax and then heated to over 200 degree temperature), was then applied in layers along with colored wax, Pan Pastels, hot glue (a few choice words) and tissue paper. The trick in fusing is in applying the wax without burning anything. Including me. This is a 4,000 year old process that ties back to Egyptian and Greek times. It is an artistically balanced piece IMHO with a very earthy, organic vibe. With bandaids applied, here you have the mighty abstract tree. Not as perfect as mother nature, but consider the source.🤣
