My family and I spent the summer up north at our lake house in Northern Michigan. It was full of inspiration with stunning sunrise and sunset views over the water every single day. This custom painting was created based on my client’s similar admiration for sunrise over the water and the first light of the morning. When creating this piece initially I started out with colors that didn’t work. I realized they didn’t match the space and I had to fix it. The good thing about working with the encaustic medium is you can scrape it off and start fresh. So I did! I scraped off the wax and started over. I am so glad I took that leap of faith. Looking back it’s clear to me and I feel at peace knowing it’s ok to take a step back in order to move forward. 

I fixed the color and overall composition to better match the client’s space. This piece meant so much to me and I am thrilled to see it bring life and light to it’s new home in Illinois.

Care Instructions

After completion of an encaustic painting there is a curing process of a few months. During this time moisture will work its way to the surface and cause a slight haze (this is called bloom). When the sheen dulls or looks dusty, it can be buffed (gently, firmly but not overly vigorous) to a high gloss using a soft lint-free cloth (similar to polishing or dusting furniture). The sheen dulls over time and can be brought back by repeating the process. Although the surface is completely dry, encaustic paintings can be easily scratched, gouged, or chipped if handled roughly. No fingernails please! Protect all encaustic from extreme heat (above 140 F) and freezing temperatures.

What is Encaustic Art?

Encaustic is a painting method where pigmented beeswax is melted, applied to a surface and reheated to create a smooth or textured finish. The surface can be polished, modeled, textured and combined with other materials. It cools immediately, can be reworked and has a long durability due to beeswax's imperviousness to moisture.
