"Best Foot Forward", open show to all conference attendees
Day 2 of the encaustic conference, and I am exhausted! I have finally been able to see, learn, and understand so many of the things that during the past year challenged me. One of the very first paintings that caught my attention in the "Best Foot Forward" show was done by Rodney Thompson. His landscape paintings have the luminous qualities that I will strive to achieve and understanding. His process (the way he shared and described it) made everything finally make sense to me. I hope to practice so many of the new things I have learned after I have had time to sit with it all. I still have 1 more day of the conference and 2 post conference workshops. This conference has been a wonderful collaboration and gathering of wonderful artists and I am so fortunate to be a part of it all.
