Lingering Muse

It's been several weeks since I've gotten my brushes wet. I've been in kind of a slump I guess. I've been really busy at work and church and dealing with some personal issues. My muse has not been gone, but lingering. So I've been doing what my friend Bob Hague says to do at such times....I've been reading my art books and watching my art DVDs. And it's working! I'm getting all inspired! Yippie!

I've been reading about encaustic painting and some of the faux encaustic techniques in my current 3 favorite books. If you haven't yet, check out Acrylic Revolution by Nancy Reyner, Rethinking Acrylics by Patti Brady, and Creative Paint Workshop for Mixed Media Artists by Ann Baldwin. There are so many cool things that I can't wait to try!
