Prairie dogs live in tight-knit family groups called coteries, with breeding males tending to jump from coterie to coterie—but the females stick together for life. As the saying goes, "behind every successful woman is a tribe of other successful women who have her back." Linda Benenati's painting inspires us to be fiercely unstoppable together!
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.
