I have had a wonderful day attending an encaustic class with Serena Barton here in Olympia, WA. There is a new art studio here called Queen Bee Art Cottage--- it is a fabulous old farm house made into an art retreat destination! They prepared a lovely panini and fresh fruit lunch, which was much needed in a 7 hour day of painting. I met a lot of great ladies and ended up finishing 6 paintings. Here are a few of them. Some...well, they really don't need to displayed publically! ha!
The lettering is collaged on and edged with goldleaf.
The butterflies are photo transfers. We learned all kinds of techniques!
This one was made using a pretty Paris scene that was the packaging on a bar of soap. I'm still deciding if I love it. I think it has a feel of looking out a window onto the street.
Maybe I'll post a couple more in the future. And, I will definately be playing with my encaustic stuff more now. XO
