Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

I've been inspired by satellite images of Earth as the planet turns from day to dusk to night and the cities begin to light up. This is a mixed media piece because what appears to be mountains is made by using dried rose and peony petals (from my garden). A pearlized aqua powdered pigment is used in the top portion of this 14x11 painting; similarly I've used a luminescent violet powdered pigment in the lower reaches and the tops of the mountain ridges are dusted with copper and gold dust. It's a little fantastic, but also intriguing; not a "real" image of a particular portion of the Earth, yet it could be. I've made use of the thermal energy of the encaustic medium as it moves from its molten state to a solid one, fusing the paint with a heat lamp which I hold up for long periods of time, but I can control the heating and cooling with this technique -- much the way our planet was formed.

Materials used:

encaustic paint, powdered pigment, rose petals, metallic pigments
