Breathe Mixed Media Encaustic Painting by Kim Schulze
Breathe. A word I need to chant daily. This encaustic painting is a reminder to me that a calm, flowing breath is preferable to the halting, stacatto breath that comes with anxiety. Breathe…be calm.
The roughness of the sisal paper, which is layered between many layers of wax, contrasts with the smooth, luminous finish created by the fused wax. The surface is calm and inviting to touch. What is your favorite calming word?
