Tomorrow I start a new venture. It will be my birthday and I am celebrating with a new experience with my art. I have wanted to try encaustics for some time now. Last week after watching many videos and reviewing MANY blog posts, I decided I wanted to start working with encaustics. I have ordered all my materials, they should be arriving tomorrow for my birthday. What better way to start my birth year but with new beginnings. In the past year I have been searching for my artistic "niche", I am come close to finding it but something is still missing. I am so excited about encaustics and the possibilities. I love the simplist yet deep look that can be achieved with this technique. The above video is my encaustic muse.....her work is beyond fabulous!
