Advanced workshop

We just finished the last of the four days and I know I had as much fun as the participants. This makes the thirty seventh workshop in the last few years.Everything in my studio is covered in encaustic.

I love sharing the encaustic technique and watching the original pieces that everyone creates. I photograph all the participants and keep the images in albums to share with all.

At the end of our time together, I feel I have made new friends and have opened up a new creative adventure for others. For more information go to my website="">

December workshops

Monday and Tuesday I had the introductory encaustic workshop. It was fun, as always, to share this beautiful technique with others. It's a day off today and tomorrow and Friday we have the advanced techniques workshop. The weather is beautiful so I can keep the doors and windows of the studio open for light and air.

Gem series

I finished 13 of the small, 6 1/2" x 6 1/2" paintings. The finishing of the frames took a couple of days, but I like the look of the box frame. They can stand on a table or shelf or hang on a wall.
