In The Works

Apr 17, 2012

Yes­ter­day, I played with wax and must admit Encaus­tic art makes my heart happy. This can­vas piece is still in the works but I love how it is turn­ing out. The soft white and hues of cream make me swoon. The tiny doily is made by my mom. It was just too per­fect not to use in this piece.  I’m think­ing this might be a fun class to teach at “The Crafty Scrap­per”, in the near future. What are your thoughts?

I love how dif­fer­ent these two mini can­vas pieces are yet the col­ors are the same. It was so much fun exper­i­ment­ing with dif­fer­ent tools and embell­ish­ments… doilies, dried flow­ers and small feath­ers are per­fect addi­tions for encaus­tic work.

This one is one is my favorite. The photo is of my grand­mother and mom and is one of my favorite pho­tos of the two of them together. I wanted a word to put on the can­vas and was so amazed when I looked down on some sheet music and “ten­der­ness” was look­ing right back at me. I thought it was the per­fect word for this piece. I’m also think­ing about adding a few small vin­tage but­tons to this piece… gonna think on this idea for a bit longer.

So have ANY of you tried any new medium? I really hope my “An Artist Can­not Fail” blog series is inspir­ing some­one out there. Please let me know and share some projects. I would love to see.

Hugs!
