Encaustic painting in jewellery settings.


I have too many paintings for the walls and I have always enjoyed “small” so increasingly I am doing tiny works to put into jewellery settings. Many are silk paintings but I have also been exploring my own unique way of painting with pigmented wax,encaustic paintings, as wearable art. Encaustic paintings are beautifully vivid and under the glass cabochon the 3-dimensionality is accentuated. These are selling so well locally and to cruise ship visitors that I am finding it difficult to keep up with demand. Many, like the set, are based on flowers in my garden but some are abstract ocassionally suggesting a scene.No two can be the same as it is not possible to get that degree of control with the way I work. But that is how I like it … each unique item to be paired with a unique wearer.
Today I bought a mini tripod and remote shutter for my mobile phone so I can take photos of my work quickly and without any camera shake. All I need now is to make up a tent to get rid of the reflection of the studio windows.
