Anne Stine Fine Art Virtual Art Exhibit – February 2021
In response to the art show cancellations and gallery closings due to the COVID19 social distancing mandate in Virginia, I’ve created a monthly virtual art exhibit available online showcasing my latest encaustic paintings.
THIS MONTH’S EXHIBIT
This virtual art exhibit for February, 2021, is in a video format to hopefully give you a more personal viewing experience. Click the art exhibit image below to view the YouTube video and hear about my inspiration and process in making the 6 featured encaustic paintings.
This month, the collection is all about water — rushing, wandering, cascading. There is something refreshing about gazing upon water in all of its forms.
The inspiration I used to create the encaustic paintings is landscapes near my home in VA/MD/DC area. Details and purchase information are on my website https://www.annestine.com. Click the “Portfolio” link to locate your favorite painting information.
I’ve also added an “artist talk” video to give you an exhibition reception experience where I describe the inspiration and technique behind each painting.

WHAT IS ENCAUSTIC?
Each piece is made from encaustic wax applied to birch wood panel. Encaustic paint is a mixture of beeswax, natural tree sap resin, and pigment. I heat the paint on a hotplate and then apply it on to a cradled wood panel using brushes. Every layer of wax needs to be fused with a blow torch to ensure it is fully bonded to the surface. My encaustic artwork is known for its vivid color, dramatic texture and unique organic visual design. My inspiration is the beautiful scenery in nature that holds special meaning in my heart. Hear about my inspiration behind the painting by clicking the image below.

The beauty of encaustic is truly appreciated when viewed in person. It is difficult to see the texture and luminescence of the wax in a 2D digital platform, so I can send additional photographs, video, or zoom conferencing as an opportunity to view the piece “up close”. I also offer studio visits by appointment to view the artwork. My studio is located in Purcellville, Virginia. Simply contact me to set up a time to come by.
