Encaustic: "Instructions For Living a Life"

Encaustic (6x6) "Pay Attention"
Artist: Cindi Moynahan-Foreman

Encaustic is so delightful. The smell of the bees wax heating, layer after layer and the endless possibilities for "additions" and "subtractions".

This piece measures 6 x 6 on encaustic board. It is mixed media with words from Mary Oliver. Mary Oliver's poetry inspires me. My artwork frequently starts directly from a place of having been moved deeply by her words. Sometimes the entire poem. Sometimes a single line.
