Creative Image Transfer Giveaway!

So I have some exciting news that I have been anxious to reveal. A while ago I was asked to create an encaustic artwork that used Transfer Artist Paper or TAP. The work was included in a book by Lesley Riley called Creative Image Transfer and it's finally out!

 Lesley is doing a great giveaway that I'd like to share with you!
She is giving away a copy of the Creative Image Transfer book and TAP Transfer Artist Paper
That means you can create any number of the awesome projects in her new book. And I have to say that I am very excited to try out some of these projects myself! They are so incredibly creative, using image transfers in ways I had never even considered.

To enter just go to Lesley Riley's blog by clicking here. Promotion dates are August 6-10.
The work shown below is the one that I have included in the book. Using the TAP is really easy and there are step by step instructions for every project!
Have fun!

Hello again!

Nostalgia 24x18 encaustic mixed media with pine bark
 I have so much new work to share! Obviously because I haven't updated in a very,very long time! I am still here and I'm still busy making lots of artwork. I have been considering the fact that the whole reason I started this blog was to hold myself accountable. I hadn't really produced my own work for years and this blog definitely served it's purpose. If someone would have told me that I would be exhibiting in galleries when I began this blog I never would have believed them.

 So while I do plan on posting here again I do believe it's time for a blog overhaul. New name, new look, new purpose! I just don't know when I'll be able to do it. I should have done it this past summer because now I'm looking at a new school year starting very soon. It will have to wait a little longer, but first, I think I need to just start posting more regularly again.

Since my last post I have traveled a lot. I went back to Italy with students, visited family in Nashville, and vacationed with friends and family in Mexico. And if you can't tell, the color of the ocean is still influencing my work. But for now I am going to soak up as much of these fleeting summer days as I can.
