Encaustic on Canvas


The world of Encaustic Art is exciting to me! The layers of paint, fiber, paper, metal and wax, meld into a wonderful creative expression on canvas. These two canvasses were entered in a show 2 years ago and won honorable mention. I haven't entered anything since that time, but after visiting the
website of a friend from Versailles, I have new found inspiration! Thanks, Gretchen.



Encaustic art is the most fun I've ever had of all the mixed media art I create. I really need to start a gallery on line of my projects...as soon as I find an eighth day in the week! I will one day, soon!

Trying to keep up with 3 blogs, Facebook and email doesn't leave much time! I'm taking Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign classes as well! It seems like you can never do it all. But I keep trying!
