I decided to play around with the wine imagery...and created a series of small encaustics on 4"x4" clayboard...here is one of them

MORE Encaustics... from Exploration Day...

I love witnessing the process and what evolves for people. The medium itself provides a wonderful context for imagery and exploration... Here are more encaustics done at last weekends encaustic exploration days.






I plan on doing another weekend workshop the first weekend in Oct. Now its time for me to get back in the studio again myself....

Weekend Encaustic Class.....

What a stimulating and engaging weekend.




I facilitated an all Day Encaustic Exploration Class and then the next day an Encaustic Open Studio day at my studio.












Here are some photos of the studio and some photos of what folks created.

More process and More Encaustics...
