Cafe in the Afternoon - Encaustic painting utilizing image transfers from photographs taken by Christine, 23” dia, wooden round. Encaustic is painting with molten beeswax, mixed with damar resin and pigments. 

Cafe in the Afternoon is part of the Country / No Country series exploring rural and urban, travel and home, man and wilderness, and the places where they all fold together.

Sajecki’s encaustic paintings are dreamy and sometimes allegorical explorations of her surroundings. They are shaped by history, storytelling, social engagement, urban foot paths, and the body and behavior of the materials she uses.

Encaustic is Ms. Sajecki’s favored medium.  “Encaustic is my home. It's almost like a living thing- its warmth, its body, its behaviors- and painting with it engages all the senses in ways that other mediums don't. Encaustic is so tactile, so physical, and so malleable.”

"This was an image I took in Panama which evoked a sense of space and peace so years later I incorporated this in Country / No Country Series.
