I am having so much fun just taking the time to play with encaustics. I'm trying to brighten my color palette, just a little, and am loving the textures/ patterns you can get with layers of encaustic. Also, because I work outside on the encaustic because of the fumes, I get to enjoy the beautiful weather we're having! I've also been working on some new jewelry, silver and copper, and am treating it like I do my mixed media's by texturing, pounding and layering the pieces. It's been fun and I hope to have some pieces done by the Labor Day Weekend Art Show here at the studio/gallery. Opening reception is Friday, September 4 from 5-8pm lots of food and wine! Lots to do!
