Matthew MacDougall painting

Matthew MacDougall’s Artwork
Available at Chatham House

Chatham House Lifestyle Gallery: A Verellen Boutique, Suite 102-A, is pleased to announce its partnership with local artist Matthew MacDougall. Matthew’s paintings are encaustic and mixed media, painted on archival quality cradled wood panels. Encaustic (hot wax) paintings are made with natural, renewable resources including beeswax, resin, and pigment. Matthew paints in layers, fusing each one with heat and using a variety of tools. Since beeswax is impervious to moisture, it will not yellow or darken over time. As a medium, encaustic paintings date back about 2,000 years. Please stop by Chatham House and view a selection of Matthew’s work.
