Large encaustic impressionistic figurative by artist Janet Amundson-Splidsboel

My latest 24"x24" encaustic (painted with molten, pigmented beeswax) is entitled, "Vera", which was my mother's name, although my daddy always called her Nancy.  I have a photo of my mother when her hair was wavy like this. There are over 25 layers of wax in this painting, each layer fused to the underneath layers with a propane torch.  I dedicate this painting to my dear mother. -Janet Amundson-Splidsboel
