Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

This mixed-media encaustic abstract (on cradled basswood panel) began with a deep turquoise ground then a sheet of Japanese paper with a high-fiber content (numerous paper threads). I began layering the encaustic (highly-pigmented purified beeswax strengthened with resin), and added small white and green pearls and chips of green glass, then fused the surface painstakingly with a heat lamp, adding more pigment, oil stick and hard wax, fusing yet again. It looks as if the constellations are visible, and while this might be seen as a spring sky above the tree line, I prefer the more abstract concept of darkness rising up out of the ground, a kind of reverse of the actual. Signed and dated on the back, framed in a slim silver canvas floater frame, this painting ships with a digitally-registed Certificate of Authenticity.

Materials used:

encaustic paint, wax, fiber, pearls, glass chips
