Escape to the Big Apple is the latest encaustic portrait as part of a new series of narratives by Linda Benenati called Arrivals and Departures. She's just landed and about to go on an adventure of the unknown. Linda is inspired by the 20's and 30's, love, and a love of anything French–you can see this in how she develops her fashion and style!
Linda has ventured into wonderland for her delightful encaustic paintings. This ancient technique, dating back to the Greeks, uses heat throughout the process, from melting the beeswax mixture to fusing each layer of wax. Linda's encaustic medium consists of natural bees wax and dammar resin (crystallized tree sap). She also uniquely incorporates collage elements, which add surprise and dimension.
