“If I paint a wild horse, you might not see the horse... but surely you will see the wildness!”
― Pablo Picasso

​Elias Shawn Studio

  Encaustic painting is a madness that is fueled  by the alchemy of wax, tree sap, pigment and fire.  I never work with an orientation in mind; orientation does not exist until the piece is nearly complete. In this surrender to the process, each piece remains abstract and raw.
