Another big painting

It is difficult to photograph these large pieces. I added a detail shot. These last two are 90 x 120 centimeters. I don't think I can work any larger as I have to rearrange the studio to do these.

Studio time

I finished two mostly red paintings. Unfortunately my camera could not capture the variations in the red. It looks like it is all one color. I didn't bother to post the other one.

Both Jenny and Donna returned to use my studio and materials to continue their adventures in encaustic.
Jenny had to dash off to a meeting and I didn't photograph the wonderful piece she did. She is a fabric designer and is now creating some designs in encaustic. Donna finished the sunset painting that she had begun in the advanced workshop, and added a collage to another piece. Both are beautiful

Time for my own work

It felt good to rearrange my studio so I could work on another big piece. I put two tables together to handle the 36" x 47" board. I move from working around the tables to easel, depending on how I am fusing. I'm reworking a figurative piece that never satisfied me, and there were lots of colorful layers to add to the depth of the new abstract. There is to be a group show November in the Pozos gallery. The theme is,"Now Revolution"
