"Fall Foliage Art Studio Tour" was a success!

The art tour was a success.  
We had 82 visitors which is amazing....we live so far from everything! 
I only expected 50 - which was last year's number.
I sold some of my encaustic paintings 
and much interest was given to my work.
It was fun all around!
The sculptures are the work of Gerry Friedman, a wonderful artist.

Talking about art....in my studio

I spent Saturday morning with filmmaker Bruce Barlow.  
Although I find it hard to discuss my art with anyone, 
Bruce was so low key and patient, 
I felt quite comfortable;  I was able to talk.

As a child I was terrified of thunder storms.
 I am still frightened by their power of destruction
although I am fascinated by their beauty.

Encaustic monotype on paper

My studio was renovated during the Winter and Spring months.
It is now ready and I just began working again.
I have been spending everyday painting with bee's wax.
Also called encaustic, I find this ancient medium very exciting, 
although a bit capricious.  
One needs the perfect temperature when working with wax and paper.
