Linda Benenati / Art / Encaustic / Floral Follies / On Golden Gate Pond

$ 475.00

Linda pulls from the 20's and 30's, anything French and locations in the San Francisco Bay Area in this Encaustic Mixed Media series, Floral Follies. We love this scene from Spreckles lake in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park where miniature model motorized and sail boats are launched. 

From the artist: "I like to create works of whimsy with a strong narrative reflecting both past and present time periods. As an artist, I want to spark an emotional connection with the viewer and begin a conversation. Hopefully, viewers will complete the story, which may have sprung from a single word, with their own story." ~ Linda Benenati

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.
