The original painting is done in encaustic on cradled panels. My first client loved the painting and wanted it very large. I tested a few different surfaces and chose the uncoated canvas for the final printing. It’s a very strong piece and could proportionately be adjusted in size based on individual needs. I will not print more than ten in the edition, regardless of size. My hope is to bring my artwork into your home at a much more affordable price-range than original works of art without looking like anything other than an original work of art.
My first monotype was made on a piece of glass with acrylic paint. The texture and off-set alignment of shapes that resulted kept me busy for hours at a time. The monotypes that I now create involve a heated plate beeswax and pigment. I paint on the plate and use a variety of subtractive and additive techniques with encaustic to create images that I fancy as “Color Landscapes”. I experiment with temperature, tools, pigment and more to create one-of-a-kind works on paper. For Waxing Kara®, we are reproducing these original encaustic monotypes as acid free, archival, Giclee (laser) prints in editions of 20 per piece available in a range of sizes. Custom sizing is available.
