"My bags are packed and I'm ready to go..." No, I am not leaving on a jet plane, but I am ready for the encaustic demonstration I will be offering at the Copley Society of Art tomorrow afternoon. When I arrived at the opening reception for the Marine Art show yesterday, I was surprised to see this poster directly in front of the gallery on Newbury Street. I knew there would be a poster promoting the event but this was more than I expected, almost life size!
The reception was well attended and there have been lots of inquiries about the demo. I am looking forward to sharing several of the techniques I have been using over the past few years.
My painting received the 2nd place award and was the only encaustic painting in the show. I feel the encaustic medium is still misunderstood and painting with beeswax seems to be peaking lots of interest lately. I will share more after the demo tomorrow.
