This is just a quick note! I realized that it has been a few months since my last post, and I wanted to just add an update to my blog. There are only 3 weeks left until my first official show of the year, the Pelham Art Festival. It's coming up fast! I have two new paintings completed, and I'm working on 6 more!! I would love to have ten ready, but realistically I think it will be more like five!. No matter though, because the events will be coming now with at least one a month until November, so I will need fresh work on an on-going basis from this point on.
It is so exciting to start new work, and watch it evolve into a finished piece. Sometimes what I envision in my mind, and what actually ends up on the canvas are light years apart! At other times, there is very little variation at all from mind and imagination to finished work. Either way, the creative journey is exciting, frustrating at times, and always offers me a creative outlet for all the images in my imagination.
I have also held 2 Encaustic workshops here in my home that were great fun. The students that came for the day were creative and funny and it was a joy to have them in my home and teach them this exciting art form. I look forward to holding more workshops in the near future.
And now I think I should get back to work on my paintings. I wish everyone a lovely spring, and hope that our paths cross someday soon.
If you would like information about upcoming events, there is a list of current shows/exhibits posted on this blog if you scroll down just a bit! There are a few more events that I am waiting confirmation on and then they will be added to the list as well. And please don't hesitate to contact me if you require any further information.
