About

'Salt Spray' is a small silver framed encaustic on board seascape painting created by American artist Maureen Naughton in 2019. Featuring a delicate palette made of grey, white, soft blue, brown and purple tones, the painting depicts foamy waves crashing into the sea. Encaustic Art is all the buzz on the contemporary art scene these days and with good reason. The luscious, translucent surfaces that can be achieved with this method are like no other. The word “encaustic” literally means to “burn in.” This refers to the process of sealing with a blow torch each layer of beeswax and pigment before applying the next. With this process the wax becomes hardened and stable. The encaustic process actually predates both oil and acrylic. The oldest surviving encaustic panel paintings are the Romano-Egyptian “Fayum mummy portraits” from the 1st Century BC. Set inside a silver frame, the painting is signed in the back. Maureen’s artwork is created with vibrant layers of energetic paint. She depicts trees, children, and still life. Her work portrays a special relationship with trees that captures their beautiful vertical lines and the sense of peace they elicit. But, it is the journey that excites her. The process is as important as the subject matter revealing undulating, ever-changing and spontaneous strokes. She says she often feels as though the paintings paint themselves. Each layer creates new possibilities, as the process continually emerges. Maureen enjoys painting large because she becomes more physically connected to the canvas, more alive. Maureen also travels to Nicaragua and Uganda each year to share her art with local children.
