Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

I painted "Floral Tapestry" with molten, pigmented beeswax medium in the encaustic/hot wax technique on 12x12 gallery wrap canvas - an acrylic finish has been applied to protect against scratches - painting is ready to hang and enjoy!
Modern Expressions using an Ancient Technique -

Encaustic painting -
The Romans, Greek, Egyptians used this ancient medium - They used pigments from the earth and mixed and melted it with beeswax/resin medium using the fire or sun. They would decorate their tombs, ships and mummies with this encaustic medium -

My Encaustic Technique:
Life is too short to clean brushes - - so I melt pigmented wax crayons and apply the molten beeswax medium with either a tacking iron or hot air gun on either canvas or boards or glass - I then move the molten colors around, sometimes just using my fingers, an old credit card or tissues - I "paint" very intuitively - I begin work without any preconceived ideas and just keep the conversation between the canvas and me going - I like the idea of each painting being on a journey ending at a beautiful destination - It is my goal to engage the viewer and to be drawn into the picture and find some pleasure -
I paint mostly Florals, Feelings and Fantasies -

Materials used:

encaustic medium, beeswax resin,pigments, acrylic finish
