About the Art:
Tree of Hope is the first encaustic painting I have ever created. It has many striking layers of encaustic resin melting down its edges - the front panel is encausticboard that is built to last and withstand time and heat - the sides are made of natural wood I stained by hand with layers of mahogany and other tints to blend dark and light colours. This painting is symbolic of Hope and its name is a homage to the famous saying "Arbol de la Esperanza, mantente firme", first appearing in a song 'Cielito Lindo', then titling a painting of Frida Kahlo.
Spanish (Original) text: "árbol de la esperanza, mantente firme".
This text in translation to English reads, "tree of hope, stand firm".
The original painting was made specifically for the annual Women's show at The Buttonwood Tree, a cultural preforming arts center in Middletown, CT, US.
