New works are in the making.
'The Blues' is just one of my recent works in cold wax and oil.
I have had a chance to immerse in the medium over the last couple of months
and am liking the results. This is a medium I am growing quite fond of.
I have had an opportunity to teach a few adult classes, private and group, over the summer.
It has been heartwarming to see experienced artists explore a new form, as well as having students that have had little or no experience in painting, with new questions and insights.
I thank each and every one who came to the classes; we've made new friends, discovered new and hidden talents, and above all, we took steps to 'let go' and create.
For me, that was the absolute best part.
I am hoping I can keep that in mind when I travel to Washington State. I am nervous and anxious, not just about flying, but about letting go of the fears one can have
throwing your skills out in front of new folks. This time I will be a student,
immersing for a whole week of creating with Encaustics.
There will be more new works.....
For years I had to tuck such adventures to the side for many reasons, work, teaching, serious family illnesses, ill pets, and a myriad of 'stuff' that happens when you are busy making plans (John Lennon). The opportunity came and I am going.
Sweet dreams are made of this.
