Beyond Letters

The Hiding Place


This encaustic painting features a ladder leaning against a multi-branched tree, providing the perfect hiding spot for a child at play. An original poem surrounds the entire scene: "Hideaway... to be a pirate or a princess... a poet or a castaway... to sail away on the bright blue sky..."

The painting is comprised of multiple layers of clear and pigmented wax resulting in a sculptural, multi-dimensional work with lots of texture. Fine details were added in oil and ink. A custom blend of beeswax and damar resin adds a translucency to give the artwork a glow and depth.

The overall artwork size is 24" x 36", and with the custom frame, the overall dimension is approximately 28.5" x 40.5". The artwork is signed and dated on the back, and is wired and ready for hanging.

Also included is an encaustic care card which tells about the encaustic process, history, and how to care for your new encaustic painting.
