Waxing and Waning

Studio time is a challenge when you have a full-time “day job” and a family. Weekends become my art/writing time. Waiting for the wax to melt gives me time to add a verse to my Twitter Poetry page – if you’re interested you can visit me there @Wordy_Woman.

Last weekend in the studio produced two encaustic pieces.

Crazy Eight


and Sunset Over Water

Sunset Over Water

All in all, not a bad weekend.

Pagan Love Song




This is an encaustic and mixed media piece I did last November but I’d never mounted it.  Since I had so much fun working with watercolors and encaustics for Buddha on the Mountain, I thought I’d mount this one on a framed wood panel with watercolor and encaustic wax on crumpled tissue paper.  I love the colors and textures that emerged in this process.
