The whimsical and vibrantly rich Curious Case of the Prickly Pair. Many of the most exotic looking tropical vine cactus are actually adapted to hummingbirds, who are attracted to the juice of the flowers of these nopal cactus

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.
