2011 is quickly coming to a close, only a few weeks left! Another year has flown by again. It has been a wonderful year of painting, and exhibits, and seeing old friends/artists, and of course meeting and making new friends. I have had the great pleasure of spending some wonderful days with very talented and kind hearted artists and gaining new perspectives and insights into myself and my artwork.
I have explored Encaustic painting this year, and have fallen in love with this medium. Acrylic is and always will be my first love, but Encaustic painting has a magical feel to it and it is such a different approach to creating a piece of work, that it offers a wonderful creative release. I have been fortunate enough to offer a few workshops in my home studio showcasing this technique and look forward to offering some more in the New Year.
I would just like to extend my sincere gratitude to all those who visited exhibits that I was part of, and to offer many thanks to all those who purchased my paintings. I am always so very grateful to have a piece of my work chosen and added to someones life, and as always, I am looking forward to another creative year with many new paintings to showcase at up-coming events.
There will be a new list of exhibits for 2012 published shortly, and I look forward to exhibiting my artwork again.
I would like to extend my heartfelt wishes to all for a very happy, healthy, prosperous, and magical New Year to come.
