Collage and Encaustic Workshop

Yesterday was my Spring Collage workshop, I do a collage and mixed media workshop every semester at the Guilford Art Center  in Guilford, CT.  This time I combined it with Encaustics a process I have fallen in love with and have been experimenting with for a while now.  We had a full house of enthusiastic women who were dying to try out this beautiful luminous medium.


I love the qualities that the wax adds to a painting and that it is so versatile. People are always so surprizes at it's simplicity - I think that there is a perception that it is complex or difficult. I find it very fluid and intuitive even for beginners.


We completed works on paper and on wooden board. What a great messy day we had with paint, wax and oil sticks.....
