Encaustic Flower Series

I take a lot of close up pictures of flowers and use them as my models for this flower series. I use the back of cigar boxes and paint the start of the flowers in pastel. I layer encaustic medium on top of the flowers. Encaustic medium is a combination of beeswax and resin. The design on the cigar box becomes the frame.

  1. Hi Lillian!
    (Hopefully) if everything worked like it should, I just bought the “Dogwood” painting. I didn’t get a confirmation so thought I’d just send you a personal note so you know it’s coming to me!
    It’s beautiful!

    1. Dear Becky ~
      So wonderful! Thank you so much. It will be an honor to have my work in your home. For some reason the link did not work. Let me check on it in the meantime. WordPress recently changed the way you build in their layouts. I wonder if it is affecting the PayPal link. Do you want to send a check in the meantime or wait until I fix this tomorrow?
      Love,
      Lillian
