Had to stay away from the hot wax last week as it was just toooooo hot. Worked in cold wax to try and cool off 😉 Still sweat quite a bit but the fun was worth it!

Back to working small as I try out new techniques. Learning as I play ~  mixing and mashing the old  with the new.  The hot California summer sun has played a role in all these pieces. Fingers crossed they translate as large as I dream them to be!

Dream of going big in encaustics… DONE!!  Kind of… I could always go larger 😉  Thank you yoga for the muscles to haul and heft these heavy buggers around

Playing around with all the different things that can be done with the wax. Scraping, layering,scraping, glazing, and did I say Scraping? Letting it develop in it’s own way in it’s own time.  Next step…Going BIG 🙂

After quite a hiatus from the studio as I settled into the most amazing endeavor of all …being a mommy… I am back in the studio working out the kinks,  getting warmed up and having a blast.
