Some conference pictures and such

I am SO bad. Not taking pictures at the 4th Annual Encaustic Conference......at Montserrat College of Art, Beverly MA. I will say that I had difficulties as I mentioned before. I got all my stitches removed today and hope I am well on my way to totally mending.

I signed up for a workshop with the phenomenal Daniella Woolf on Tuesday after the conference........emphasizing words and text. The workshop was called A WAY WITH WORDS.  She had so many tips for using encaustic and words/text in you paintings.  I got carried away with painting and did my own thing using some of her methods and mostly just my own.

Thea Haubrich, a wonderful Canadian artist, and a member of International Encaustic Artists (IEA) was more objective than I and remembered to take a lot of pictures.

It's wonderful she even has some captions for a lot of the pictures. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. It reminded me of things I would have forgotten.

Here's one of the images of the work she collaged on the hot palette and then lifted up. THIS gives me lots of ideas.


  1. I am not an encaustic artist, but I love the look of the medium and fascinated by the process. Your work is great and I really appreciate seeing all the work that goes into creating them.Thank you for sharing this.

  2. No matter, Eva. An artist is an artist first and the medium is just a way to get to where you want to take your work.
    Process is such a wonderful thing..encaustic really does draw you in with all the layering and scraping, fusing and layering. You get lost in it and it slows me down. This is sometimes good. I love my acrylic painting as well.
