……..thoughts and actions!
Last Saturday was the last class, of a four class series, in encaustics for me……sad to see it end. Now, I need to practice on my own.
Above is paper collage and encaustic wax and below is an experiment using the stamps I carve. Seems one fish met up with a sea lion who managed one big bite!
Hey, we learn by experimentation…..this one is paper (i.e. a map) that I stamped with the fish and then applied clear encaustic on the top with colored wax on the bottom, interesting results. I like the map but I don’t like the colors and it would be safer to stamp first, then apply the map to the board. The stamping surface would then be flat and easier to get a clean print, without the seal bite and part of a missing tail!
Then I did a sketch of Mr. Laugh A Lot watching T.V. with his head phones on, sitting in his favorite chair with a cat on his lap!
Then, last but not least, I told you about the group who gets together at the bakery/coffee shop to do art…..well, we are leaving little art gifts for the other customers! We are making and sharing “guerilla” art! Here are a few pieces I’ll be dropping off soon.
The weather has been dry and sunny, so we’ve been doing a little yard work, too…..so, you see many random activities are taking place in my world!
