Linda Benenati / Art / Encaustic / Barn Divas / Duchess and the Donkeys
Duchess and the Donkeys is from encaustic artist Linda Benenati's new series called Barn Divas. Linda has taken her love of animals and brought them into the Diva Girl portraiture with 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.
