"Mind Your Own Beeswax" workshop

Saturday's students pose with their work

Saturday saw "Mind Your Own Beeswax" at the studio. Five students plunged into their first (or in one case, second) experiments in encaustic. I want to share with you some photos from the class. Thanks to all the inspired and inspiring attendees! I love what you created and the fun you had doing it.

Hmmm, what color should I use next?

I really love the little boy in the grass; the artistic effects around him put him in another time and place, even with the "S" on his T-shirt. The other one I love is the one with "bird" on it; you could wear that. How I wish I was there, studying with you! Love, Alison

This looks like an amazing class,nice an messy, as they all do. I can't wait to do photo transfers w/ you in a couple weeks. See you then! And oooh, the egg tempera is tempting too. Fun stuff!
