There is calm returning to my studio.  I am finding my feet and my confidence painting with encaustics.  The wax is so surprising and enchanting to work with that it has been worth all of the heartache, disappointments and doubts of learning to work with them.  I really love this one; it just feels so comfortable and calm to me and shows a glimmer of where I may head with this ethereal medium.

I like the other piece I painted this week too...  I popped it up over here and there is a bit of a debate about the title going on.  I’m still not sure what I will call it, but I am so thrilled it has engaged people.


  1. I love this piece. The title is perfect.

  2. a soul satisfying combination of blues with just a hint of green...beautiful.


Thanks for dropping by and for leaving me a comment. It brightens my day!
