This piece I created for one of my Hero’s, Raoul Wallenberg, the Swedish Diplomat and
Humanitarian. I started by painting the cradled birch panel with Black paint. Then I drew
hundreds of tears using NeoColors ( Beeswax crayons from Switzerland ). Then layers of
Encaustic medium ( 8 parts beeswax, 2 parts damar crystal). Scraping the painting and
sculpted Petals to hold the Tears. Sculpted tiny handles out of the scrapings to hold my hair
beaded with real Moonstone Teardrops.
