Tired Tug, photo encaustic, 21x43

Kathy Hastings

It has only been in the last few years that I've left the arena of art education and spiraled back to full-time studio work. My images are most often a combination of traditional painting techniques and photography. In my current work I am exploring encaustics. I fuse layers of melted beeswax on the photo, along with oil paint, oil pastels and mica powder for added texture and translucency.
