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!

Lovin’ the Bees Wax

Encaustic & Oil on Cradled Board 9 x 12

Just can’t get enough of the whole melting wax and oil paint together. To feed the addiction I bought a new fancy  encaustic griddle which makes everything a million times easier… like my dad always said “any job is easier if you have the right tools”… such wisdom!
