Beekeepers House, 44x37.5" framed encaustic panel.

Beekeepers House 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.

Encaustic is painting with molten beeswax, mixed with damar resin and pigments. The process translates literally as “to burn or melt.”  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 is about the neighborhood I live in Baltimore. It's an old Mill valley with stone houses from the 1800's, TV and radio stations, and a lot of forests. The steepness of the neighborhood and all the modes of transport that go through it make for a strange and beautiful though funky landscape. There is a river, a highway, a light rail, and other surface roads, all weaving in and out of tiny old precarious houses.
