In this distinct encaustic, a hummingbird reaches toward an abstract flower of bright red. The moment is captured against a milk white background with the bird paused at its center. The surface of Red II is soft, it’s wax material having been melted into composition. As a borderless piece this encaustic also reads beyond it’s 8 x 8-inch dimensions, giving it the advantage of space compatibility.
