Item Description

9x14 Encaustic on birch plywood by artist, Lainey Beck

This custom painting would be a special addition to any baby or child's room.  It has a beautiful meaning that can not be purchased in a store.  It was specially created to save babies!  A unique gift idea too.

From the Artist:

The layers of brushstrokes in shades of red, blue, pink and white form a matrix resembling a plaid fabric, or blanket. Dots punctuate the grid, dancing on the surface, interrupting the fluid lines below. A metaphor for counting.
The surface is smooth and sensuous and can be buffed to a high shine as the
painting cures and "blooms", or moisture comes to the surface. This is an ancient painting medium first used by the Greeks in Egypt. Those early paintings are still in existence. The encaustic is molten beeswax, pigment and damar varnish.
No framing necessary. 

Shipping within the contiguous 48 states included in bid price.
