Seahorse - Original Encaustic Painting

An original, mixed-media, encaustic painting of a sweet little seahorse. A perfect little painting for that little wall in your home that needs some love to remind you of those wonderful beach days.

There is a fine layer of copper and gold shimmer on top of the motion of the watery background splashing behind the seahorse. In person, you’ll experience the translucent layers of wax that were used to create this painting. You’ll love the way the light shimmers off the polished wax. Encaustic paintings are a delight to hold in person and have a wonderful smell of luscious beeswax.

Mary Elizabeth finds her happy place creating birds, trees and other works. She hopes you can see a happy version of yourself in her work as well.
