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.
