Encaustic art by Shawna Moore

Gwen sent me a link to this wonderful video that documents artist Shawna Moore's encaustic painting process:

It's interesting to watch her work.

From her artist's statement:
In recent years, the ancient method of encaustic painting is Moore's medium of choice. This unique and dynamic technique incorporates pigmented bee's wax, which is heated, re-worked, etched or scuffed to achieve dimensional depth. As each layer cools, another can be applied, resulting in a radiant and complex terrain of light, color and texture.
You can see more on her website.
