As another year draws to a close I reminisce on some favorite pieces and all the new experiences my artwork has allowed for me. 2016 was a year filled with new opportunities for my practice and I am ever grateful for all of it. I send that gratitude out to all who have helped make it happen and carry a full heart into 2017!! The best and happiest of new years to you all!!
This encaustic baby of mine was accepted into the juried show “Making Your Mark” ! Hooray! Those of you local to the Santa Fe area the show will be up at the Encaustic Art Institute Sept 21- Oct 16. I will be attending the opening reception Sept 29 5-8pm. Come say Hi 🙂 Feeling Blessed for sure!!!
Steadily living my dreams in the studio these days. A quiet series of landscapes seen through the ethereal lenses we call The Veil… dreamy, atmospheric, and open to anything. Made possible by the magic of bees wax.
How busy I have been!!! Working large, exploring and just discovering! Stepping out of my comfort zone and putting the work out there into juried competitions, festivals, and gallery submissions. So far the results have been a mixed bag of being completely ignored and winning some awards. I’m ready to take the many losses needed for the few hard won wins!
I have found a happy groove working with the wax …Some pieces are on wax coated with shiny metallic pigments that add the sense of magic and otherworld-ness I look for in my work 🙂 Happy to be painting!
