2018 is on fire! Or was...

I started the new year with a burst of energy. Turns out I don't "spring clean", I "put Christmas away and New Year clean like a boss!" And with my studio/office clean and re-organized, I was able to get back to making art. I was on fire until Erin decided to share her cold with me. She's a giver. But before that, I had pulled out the encaustic materials and made half a dozen pieces! And for me, who has a love/HATE relationship with melted wax, that is a win! It helped that I was doing photo encaustic pieces and transfers. I even pulled the silk screen printing I was doing into the mix! 

And low and behold, one of those pieces made it into the Sierra Wax Artist's annual juried Member Show - Cross Pollination! This year's show is so strong!  I am so proud to be a part of this amazing, talented, and fun group of artists. Be sure to check it out at Arthouse on R.

And because encaustics are hot right now (sorry), 2 other galleries in the building are also featuring encaustic pieces! So swing by Studio 10 and Sparrow Gallery while you are there, you won't be disappointed.

Dia De Las Almas at Studio 10

I was asked to Include my painting Memento Mori in this year's Day of the Dead show at Studio 10. So I had to find just the right frame for this canvas and I think I nailed it! 

oh yes! So come out to Arthouse on R this 2nd Saturday (October 8th) and celebrate with amazing art, jewelry, food, drinks and friends! Bring a photo of a loved one to place on the community altar!
