LOVE Birds sittin' in a TREE

This colorful  mixed media encaustic painting can be customized. I have layered lots of encaustic beeswax over pages from a vintage math book.
The white heart on the tree is blank and I can actually carve, into the encaustic wax,  names or initials. Making this original painting a fantastic wedding or anniversary gift.
 There are also two little "love birds" sitting on the tree swing.
 The textures and colors are really fantastic in this painting. To create these fun leaves, I dripped hot encaustic wax in lots of different colors creating layers of  leaves.
One of the things that I like about encaustic beeswax paintings is the wonderful shine the painting gets when you buff the cooled wax with a cloth.The texture and color really pop.
