Christmas pears - gouache, encaustic & graphite on board - 11"x 20"

I have been trying to pull out of the recesses of my brain some Christmas still lifes without them being obviously the usual holly berries and ribbons, etc. I think I uncorked the geanie bottle today and now a bounty to follow in the coming days.

Wow Gretchen I love this painting.
The whole "wallpaper" thing really works for me and the pears are festive for the holidays!

I like your painting. I do encaustic art but I`ve never tried mixing it with other things. I think I might have to give it a go.What do you use to put the wax on? If you`d like to see my work have a look at .I`d love to know what you think.
Kind Regards,
