Can't wait to see everyone.

"Caretaker " Collage and Assemblage Doll workshop which you can see

The" Encaustic story telling" workshop is 

SOLD OUT

But, 
there are also a couple of spots left for 

if you would like to join me for some metal fun!
WOOT ! we will be hard at work (in a fun way) creating 4 different cuffs 
on Friday. 



I know I have not been up with my "Wax on Wednesdays" because I have been so busy with all of the workshop kits, and Country Living Magazine Show in Nashville a little over 2 weeks from now. 


I promise to try and squeeze one in sometime here in April. 

What else have I been up to? 
Hard at work ( in a fun way) on 
"Encausticology "
Image Exploration
Online workshop!
This is the first of a series of 3 encaustic workshops that I will be sharing for 2015. 
We are going to have SOOOOO much fun exploring photo encaustic painting.


What's in it?


"Let's begin at the beginning" ALL the basics , tools, equipment, set up, colorants, whys and why nots, and prepping your substrate .


Exploring multiple (lots ) of different methods of both transferring and adding imagery onto encaustic in beautiful fun ways,step by step. 




THEN....."Painterly portraits" . We will be creating several Full projects for:-adding color to highlight your image, -embellish, add beautiful layers of texture, -and then "Bringing your painting to life!" creating a brand new painting out of an image. Each of the "Painterly Portraits" methods will become a full painting start to finish.Oh my gosh we are going to have fun!


Registration is now open , and there is an early bird special pricing of just 55.00 until April 19th!

You can see all of the details on the "online workshop page " here on the blog or in my Etsy shop .

 To all of my warm climate friends :)
There has been exactly one day for 2015
when it has been sunny warm and beautiful here.

 So, we took a few hours off ,and played hooky with 
my lens that I have not used yet for my Cannon. 
Oh yes, and one of us went swimming :)
