About the Art and Artist
Artwork by Martha Robinson: About the Art: Martha Robinson captured the feeling of a shade garden by using the process of encaustic- embedding hand-drawn elements in layers of pigmented wax. Floating gold symbols invoke the mystery we all experience when resting in the dappled light of a tree.
