Biz Cards! Art Sale !

My dear son Adeeb, made me business cards for the art sale this weekend! He photographed my work for the images on one side  and did his graphic design magic on the other. I LOVE THEM!

If you are in the area on Saturday stop by and say Hi !

Labels Encaustic

I found these vintage labels in a thrift store and garage sale. Knew instantly they needed to go into encaustic work!! I hope you like.

Introducing the Label Series!

In this piece not only did I use the vintage gum labels but I also use a label from a vintage spool of thread for the center.

This piece is my favorite. I used Adeeb's stamps he made in his printing class to print on the computer printer labels.

In this piece I drew and painted on the labels.

A Bugs Life in Encaustics

 I've been working on getting encaustic pieces done for my new shop and a art show in November. It has been a joy to work everyday making art, I could definitely get use to this!

I've also been experimenting with many different encaustic techniques to build my much to learn! In the two peices above I have used an intarisa technique, burned in fabric, a lace placemat, transfered a graphite drawing, painted with oil, gouche and oil pastels! I think this is why I love working with bees wax, it allows me to use so many different mediums in many different ways.
