This is a small original encaustic painting of three craws in an abstract Scottish landscape.
It is made from a mixture of beeswax and tree resin which has been melted together and coloured with pigments and is on a rigid cradled birch board.
The edges of the piece have been finished in a Japanese technique called Shou Sugi Ban. This involves charring the wood with a blowtorch before cleaning and waxing.
This piece can be hung as is, or framed in a box frame.
It measures 4" x 4" x 1"
The tree resin raises the melting point of the wax and the painting will not melt under normal household circumstances! In fact, encaustic will last for many, many years if treated like any other fine artwork.
