Goldie with Poppies in her hair shines in her 60's attires as she arrives in San Francisco and basks in front of the Golden Gate Bridge. Linda Benenati called this new series: Arrivals and Departures.
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.
