I create imagined landscapes with lush botanical forms and vibrant colors reminiscent of my childhood home in Hawaii. Working with encaustic wax, one of the oldest forms of painting, I layer hot beeswax, pigment and resin together, adding and subtracting layers until I get the look I want. No other type of painting offers such a unique combination of depth, luminosity and texture.
Gather the Wind, 36" x 48", encaustic and mixed media by Linda Robertson currently on exhibit in the AIR Gallery Reunion show at the Portland Center for the Performing Arts through the end of May.
