The encaustic medium is magical, vibrant and translucent.  My creative muse guides, inspires and feeds my soul through this medium, mixed media and collage.  Blessing me with endless moments of creative joy and harmony...providing those ahhaa moments about life.  Join me on this creative journey, spend some time reading my musings about this life, the blessed other souls that come into contact with mine, however brief or often, that can leave everlasting imprints on our journey....perhaps our lives might share some similarities, bringing us closer and more connected...and less isolated.

"I suppose there is one friend in the life of each of us who seems not a separate person, however dear and beloved, but an expansion, an interpretation, of one's self, the very meaning of one's soul." ~ Edith Wharton

Here's to finding those expansive moments.....

Third Annual Encaustic Painting Conference - Fifth Post Conference Report 5

I had the opportunity to attend Cynthia Winika's Paper Demo at the Encaustic conference..and  what a delight it was...she is a lovely person, and instructor...I learnt a lot about papers, dipped papers, pouring medium over a piece and much more....
