Engaging Day Exploring Encaustic


The small group of women who came to my encaustic class last weekend, were totally engaged and lost in the process.



 I love it when participants explore process deeply without attachment to outcome,




just diving in and seeing what the media can accomplish.



This is what happened




 everyone meshed




 and that wonderful



creative buzz





of focused,





yet playful



energy




filled




the studio.

Reconfiguring my Studio ~ Encaustic Group on Saturday


Today is all about cleaning up and reconfiguring my studio, since I am facilitating an encaustic day on Saturday.  Pulling out all the mixed media supplies, checking to make sure I have enough medium made,
cleaning brushes and more.



I haven't taught an encaustic group since late spring, and I am excited to be doing this again.
It always gets me going on a new piece and as of late I have been not cranking up the hot plates and producing.  So sharing is a way of getting me motivated.

Although my encaustic supplies are not in disarry, I have tables to move, electric cords to plug in and I need to make sure my extra hotplates are in the right areas of the studio.  Often times all that electricity blows a fuse or two, so heat guns and hot plates need to be placed strategically around the studio.


So enough of me messing around on the computer, which I have been doing all morning.  I have been creating holiday cards from my art on my zazzle site ( check it out if you are interested)  ArteEclectica
Time to open up the door to my studio and get going.
I will post images from the workshop after the fact.   Ciao...

The job of the artist is always to deepen the mystery.
