The Big Melt
This ready-to-frame painting was created using cold wax mixed with oil paints, giving this piece of art an unusual matte sheen that has dimension and a soft luster. Cold wax and oil is a delightful combination of traditional medium and encaustic paintings. "The Big Melt" image is 11"x14" on a 12x16 canvas sheet ready to frame.
About the Artist
Torn between the joys of running a gallery and the joys of being an artist, Jen struggles to do both well. Jen's main passion is clay, because it is such a versatile canvas. She likes the fact that it ends up hard and strong but begins pliable and ready for anything. Cold wax and oil have a similar quality...a painting that is all about texture, color and form. You can buy her work online or see for yourself the usual dimension of a cold wax painting.
