Linda Benenati / Art / Encaustic / Moon Dog Dreaming
Moon Dog Dreaming has Linda's Duplicity theme delightfully expressed under the moon phases in this charming encaustic collage. Linda has taken her love of animals and brought them into the portraiture with her whimsy, 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.
