Medium: oil pastel

Starting Bid: $1500
Don Maynard’s painting is a rich exploration of markings and gestures. He paints with encaustic; a centuries-old technique of working with molten waxes. Paintings become carefully built up surfaces - layer upon layer of texture - revealing subtle traces of symbols and graphic iconography. Various traditional and industrial materials create these highly textured surfaces.

My work is an exploration of realism in fantasy; representing familiar things and places in an imaginative way.
Nature's magic work on earth, organic shapes and patterns created by its force inspires me; I paint the moods and colours of Lake Huron, the rocky beauty of Georgian Bay and Muskoka region, shorelines and fauna of Southampton.
I have a strong passion to recreate nature on canvas as I see it to give pleasure to people's imagination.
