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.....

Give to Get on Your Blog - I found a great resource today, that I would like to share with you.....

Today, I got reading a friend and colleague's blog, Rita Vindedzis' - a Toronto based artist.  Her blog post from Wednesday June 27th, was a valuable blog post for me ..and got me connected to Alyson B. Stanfield's Artbizblog --   I too would highly recommend Alyson B. Stanfield's blog, it has a wealth of information, on the business of being an artist..she covers so much....Particularly, what hit home for me this round, was the blog post Give to Get on your Blog, got me thinking about my blog...For a while now, I have been seriously reflecting on how I can revive my blog...

I have often thought the place to begin, to start this process would be to ask you, the readers, what it might be that you want to see on this blog?
Are you interested in techniques?
Looking for resources?
What keeps you coming back, or what would support and encourage you to come back?   I would love to hear from you.  What would you like to see on a blog, and specifically my blog, what is meaningful to you???

I look forward to your comments and for your time and feedback, I will send out a signed "The Wax Book, Altered, Repurposed, Remade" exhibit catalogue to one commenter.  I will draw one name from the pool of comments made..for more information on the catalogue being offered, visit these two links:  June 14th blog post  and on Blurb. com
Thank you to all for your time.
