I've been in quite an art funk lately. Haven't posted here in 2 months. But all that time, I've been really looking forward to the Mini Encaustic Workshop I'm taking later this month at R&F Paints in Kingston, NY.
I've been gradually gathering my supplies and keeping my nose buried in my encaustic books, planning to start after the workshop. Today decided that I just couldn't wait anymore and had to get my hands in the wax! What fun!!! Perfect medium for the texture junkie I am! LOL! I've got tons to learn and can't wait until the workshop to be able to ask all my questions.
So here they are! My first 3 real encaustics! Yippie!!! The square ones are on 8"x8" birch panels. The other one is on 5"x7" clayboard. In addition to the encaustic paints, I used oil sticks on all of them, photo transfers on the first and second (photographs compliments of my sister, photographer Roberta Fair), and fabric stips on the third one. Can't wait to do more!!!
