Artist's description:

A mass of snowdrops inspired by the sheets of them that arrive every year in our rural Herefordshire garden. This picture was originally made for an exhibition called 'Snowdrops and Candles Soothed the Bedside', the starting point of which was Seamus Heaney's poem 'Mid-Term Break'. It was also shortlisted for The National Open Art Competion 2015and The Ashurst Emerging Artist Competion 2015.

It is made using the process I have developed over the last few years, using waxes and pigments.

Wax combined with pigment (encaustic) is an ancient medium. (see the Fayum portraits made between 200 and 100 BC at The British Medium). It is long-lasting and durable. Just remember to avoid heat and direct sunlight and extreme cold. Dust by wiping with a lint free cloth.

Materials used:

beeswax, paraffin wax, pigment

snowdrops soothed series, iii (2014)
