Encaustic Artwork

 

Encaustic art is an ancient form of artwork that involves painting with hot colored waxes and resins. Many of my encaustic pieces incorporate my drawings and prints .  The wax gives the pieces a three contour and depth.  I utilize my woodworking skills to create various shaped board and elaborate boxes.  To learn more about encaustic art, visit: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Encaustic_painting

Jazz pianist plays "Fly Me to The Moon" on a grand piano accompanied by the rest of the quartet - trumpet, sax, drums and stand-up bass player (who looks a lot like Christian McBride) inside the piano box filled with flowers.  The Moon (being flown to) is on the piano while the sheet music surrounds the piano.  The box is strong but light.  There is a lot going on in this piano.  A fun piece to hold and experience.
