Encaustic Mixed Media
I know I haven't been posting a lot but I have been busy enjoying the summer!
Here is my latest project. I originally had an image of a whisper in my head as I did the drawing but as the painting started to come together I had a different vision of portraying the implications of whispering, the damage it can cause and how it can take so many forms. In texting, facebook, etc... and how easily it all can be misinterpreted. Needless to say I took the cue from my teenage daughter.
I have also been working in my new art space at home. This photo is the first glimpse of it. I didn't even bother to clean up my workspace. I grabbed the camera as soon as I was done with my project.
This is my messy skillet with my colored wax and brushes. I keep meaning to clean off the skillet but then I think what if I want to use that color again? So I just leave it!
But I did clean up everything for this photo. You can see that this room has an awesome view of the farm. It's so nice to have this inspiring view to look at while I work.
But back to the studio...I picked up some book cases to support the glass table top and they are working out quite nicely. I have a lot of storage and I can display some of my things in them too.
This is my seat though! I haven't gotten around to finding a chair yet so this will have to do for the time being. I tend to stand when I work anyways so I'm in no hurry.
