A Gift

This week I am sharing a mixed media/encaustic piece that I made as a wedding gift for a special couple (Andi & Mark). Following is the finished painting but read below to hear the story behind this piece.

Andi & Mark got married on 11-11-11 so as you see I’m a bit past the date with this gift.

I have know Andi since before she was born, in fact her mom & I were pregnant at the same time. That’s why this is so special.

As you know, my paintings all have a story behind them and in my encaustic paintings the story is encased inside the waxy pigment.

I had asked Andi & Mark to give me images they would like encased in the wax. They have twin girls so most of the images were of the girls. This is what I did with the photos.
