Cold Mountain is a cold wax and oil painting on canvas board. For this type of painting, cold wax was mixed with oil paint and applied with a palette knife, scraper and various other mark-making tools. This creates a painting with texture somewhere between an oil painting and an encaustic painting. The cold wax is a mix of beeswax, gamsol and a small amount of alkyd resin. The gamsol will evaporate out of the medium, allowing the wax to harden to the density of a beeswax candle. The Cold Mountain image arose invoking the crisp autumn in the high mountains, the first snows already on the peaks.

Creating portals of light, love, joy, beauty, compassion, hope and gratitude is my lifelong passion and gift for the earth, hence the name of my art business, For the Earth. My mother painted in oils when I was young and encouraged my own drawing, painting and handcrafting in all forms. My father, the photographer, gave me my first camera at age 8. As a result of these loving influences, I am a lifelong student of both mediums. I am grateful to my wonderful Pacific NW painter teachers, Stan Capon and Edi Olson, for training my eye and technique. I hope you will enjoy this image as much as I enjoyed its creation.
