This painting represents my dear friend's favorite place where she grew up in Monterey Beach California, during her family's transition to a new home with a new baby and a toddler.

Motherhood can be an overwhelmingly joyful and all consuming time in our lives with young children. Beautiful and vulnerable, this piece mirrors my journey.


The soft swell of a wave
Our hearts grow and move beyond
Love that brought you together
Grows stronger with each passing year

A celebration of motherhood
Holding everything and barely holding on
Together we find our way through
More than where we are from
A celebration of where we are now
Mother, wife, sister, forever friend.

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.
