Dear Dale I accidentally discovered your video on YouTube whilst trying to learn more about encaustic. I am a full time artist and art teacher living in Cape Town, South Africa. What struck me was that u spoke about You faith. We r also Christians and the art I make is also about God and His creation. You are welcome to have a look at: www.lifeart.co.za.

I discovered encaustic a few months ago. There wasn’t anything available or anyone available to teach me. I approached a scientist that makes oil paints and together we developed a cold wax medium that one can paint with, without heating it up. I never knew that you could mix the wax with the paint and have been doing it as an experiment. Got beautiful results.

Guess my surprise when I saw your video and realized that we work in the same manner. Anyway, I love your work and just wanted to introduce myself as a fellow wax painter and believer. It is so nice to see someone making beauty and not focusing on political or shock value painting Hope to hear from u sometime. Best wishes fr the season and may God bless u and your family.


Dear Leonie,

Thank you so much for your encouraging words, and taking the initiative to write. What a joy to hear from another believer in the art world who also has an affinity for wax! My web email has a rather circuitous system for responding on my end and is the usual culprit for a tardy response. Having a new Springer Spaniel puppy on hand doesn’t help matters… I took a few moments to look at your site and was handsomely rewarded! What fine and visceral work …..and for the glory of God !!!!!! May he continue to guide and richly bless you along His path for your life!

Blessings to you and your family as well,
Dale
