New work

Move In, Move Out, Move On
Encaustic Mixed Media

I have been very absent from blog land for the past week or so. I had to turn in my laptop at the end of the school year so the only time I can use a computer at home is when I can steal my husband's for a minute or after my kids go to bed so I can use theirs! As a result the only thing I have been doing is checking email. I do miss visiting my favorite blogs.
Anyways, I finished this piece last night and it is my largest encaustic to date. I used a piece of masonite board for this one so it is an odd size at 10"x14". Overall I am pleased with the way it turned out. I was especially careful with the color palette as I think with the larger size I was worried about overwhelming the space with too much color and detail.
I must admit I am also having a hard time trying to figure out how to frame them. Encaustics must use floater frames and since the frames only come in certain sizes I wasn't sure how I was going to frame this one and another odd sized one I finished a couple of months ago titled "Overflow." Luckily my dad came to the rescue and he made me a whole bunch of frames! Now I don't have to worry about getting frames for everything I want to put in my exhibit in August. Thanks Dad!
