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…
The Whole Ball of Wax
The Sierra Wax Artists group will be holding a member show next month at Arthouse on R. I will have at least one piece in the show, hopefully two. It is going to be a really strong show! So many beautiful pieces – encaustic paintings, monotypes, cold wax paintings – something for everyone. Hope to see you there! I will be participating in another group show at Arthouse in June. “Collage – Invitational Group Exhibit”. In the meantime, I need to start thinking about my submissions for the upcoming Crocker Art Museum Art Auctions and the California State Fair Fine Art Exhibition.
