Linda Benenati / Art / Encaustic / Dream Divas / Milky Way Maiden
Brand new series of narratives by Linda Benenati called Dream Divas explores the vast night sky, the constellations and our dreams. Linda says the viewer might not be able to know whether the subject is the dreamer or the one being dreamed about. This one features the constellation Milky Way.
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.
