Donner Lake 1, 8x8"

Donner Lake 1, 8x8"


A popular summer spot, especially when Lake Tahoe is overwhelmingly crowded, is the close-by Donner Lake. Framed by Donner Summit and tall pine-covered mountains, it is a much-loved alpine lake. 

Donner Lake 1, 8x8", Encaustic and Oil

This, and every painting here, was conceived and created by Jess Weems in Reno, Nevada. Jess paints stories that honor the places we love and question the ways we divide and conquer the earth.

Care: This piece is made with encaustic paint, which is a combination of beeswax and damar resin, and oil pigment sticks. The resin makes it harder and shinier than just beeswax. As with all art, keep it out of direct sunlight to preserve the colors. Also keep it in temperatures lower than 150 degrees F and above 45 degrees F.
