You can count on a lot of blog postings when I have National Board to do since I am the Queen of Procrastination. I am doing better than usual, but not done.
It's time for the what I made at Artfest show...
These are four of my eight little encaustic works that I made in the Patricia Seggebruch class. I really enjoyed her class and personality. The room smelled like beeswax all day and basically we just experimented. I guess these are hard to admire from afar, but maybe you get the idea.
The next class was portrait work with Misty Mawn. Here are my mini portraits. ( I can't believe I am showing you these. I do not like them very much) I loved the class and sitting next to my expert face painter Renee (and my make me feel better Jill) but I seem to be stuck in my usual style. I know that is good, but I was so trying to get painterly (like experts Renee and Misty)and just couldn't. I guess I need more practice or white paint.
The last class I took was with Lynne Perrella. She is an excellent teacher and I enjoyed working with colors. This is my piece so far but I already know I want to add some white splotchies and merge my birds more into the background. Still have work to do but I bet you get the idea. And now I guess it's time to get back to you know what. Have a great week.
