'Three Languages' - Encaustic by Esther Kamkar
One of the most attractive features of encaustic art is the visual sense of depth;
similar to looking through the surface of a pond, or a landscape seen through mist.
This is due to one or more layers of bees wax and mixed media, created one at a time until complete.
