Original, encaustic titled "Late Summer" / Artist Michele Bruchet


Title: Late Summer

I am constantly taking pictures of scenery out the car window while driving down the road. My husband has become tolerant of my antics to snap a quick photo of interesting clouds, a colorful field, or a perfect grove of trees - sometimes with my phone camera in hand, leaning across his chest, and out his drivers side window. I can find beauty in most all things. This scene is from the car window while driving in central California.

Encaustics on cradled wood panel.

Measures 15”x 5” x 1.5” each.

Shades of yellow, green, blue, magenta, white, brown, and black.

Sides are painted black.

Signed and dated by the artist on the back and side.

Guaranteed original painting, shipped directly from my studio.

Encaustic is a very old technique in which beeswax and damar resin are melted together, pigmented, and fused with heat on to a substrate. Some of these paintings have more than 40 layers of encaustic medium applied, each layer fused by a torch. Encaustic paintings will not deteriorate, yellow or darken with time. They do not have to be varnished or protected by glass. This painting will last a lifetime and more.

Thanks for looking!
