Encaustic painting, also known as hot wax painting, involves using heated beeswax to which colored pigments are added. The liquid or paste is then applied to a surface. It is an ancient very durable medium that has recently seen a big resurgence. This is an original signed piece of art. Remember, there is always so much more detail and subtle color tha
Louise Baker is a painter working in oil and acrylic, known primarily for her thoughtful impressionistic compositions. Her paintings are characterized by a sensitive use of colour and dynamic brushstrokes: with her subjects sometimes dissolving in their pale environments in a flurry of unfocused strokes; sometimes jumping out of the canvas in contrasting bright colours with some judicious strong lines; but always capturing a mood, the quality of light, a season, a sensation. She earned a degree in design and visual communications from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Since her retirement as an art director, she has made painting a priority. Louise has taught workshops and accepts private commissions. Louise has been part of many juried group exhibitions as well as one woman shows. Her paintings are held in private collections throughout North America and Europe.
