Today feels like a metaphor for a long, deep breath. (Breathe in…….. breathe out……) I’ve recently wrapped up quite a few commitments that I’ve made over the past 6 months, and learned a lot about my time, my priorities, and myself. I’ve also come head to head with my tendency to have many many more ideas than a girl can possible execute in real time. There are also so many things that I want to learn, to read, to do… how to let go of it and deal with the reality of being a human being (and one not in possession of a time machine!) The thing is, in learning to let go, I am also hoping to more fully embrace my priorities and commitments that are on my plate. And my art is definitely on my plate!
I haven’t been writing much in this blog lately, so I’d like to just check in today, let you all have a little peek into my studio process. Because just like life, it is SO about the process…
I love collecting old, disintegrating books, and using them in my art.
Here are a bunch of canvases, lined up against the wall… waiting for the next layer of paint…
… And a few recently finished encaustic panels. I’ve been experimenting with some different colors, and techniques.
So, back out to the studio I go!
Coming soon: Encaustic Technique #3: Collage and enclosures.
