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.....

Well, some years ago..during the beginning of my social work days, I met and worked with a wonderful polish woman, Bozena...and she taught me a lovely polish tradition her family practiced that I never ever forgot....that on your birthday you are the one bearing gifts and cake etc.

So for my upcoming birthday, I am doing a giveaway for you....Leave me a comment, a quote, a tid bit, a hello, any words would be grand,  by Friday July 23rd..and I will enter your name into a draw for a give away of encaustic mixed media work.
From me to you!
Happy Birthday to me : )

I would love to wax eloquent here but I seem to be short on words most times.
(thinking you could use the wax on your paintings)
Happy Birthday, I would love to be in the drawing.

Happy Birthday!!
It sounds like a very Hobbit-like custom aswell to give away presents to celebrate. Such a wonderful idea and one I think I'll practice too when my next one comes around. Thank you for the inspiration.
And, yes, I'd love my name to be entered into your draw.

Hi Supria,

Many happy returns of the day! Your work is even lovelier in person. I can't wait to take another encaustic class!

Beautiful work, Supria. I saw some of your work at Art in the yard, and have a new appreciation for an art form I was unfamiliar with.
