I also have been notified that all 3 of my paintings were accepted into "Encaustic Nature in Art" at the Art Center in Highland Park, IL. The show opens and runs through the month of March and for me the opening reception on March 7 will be the first time I visit the art center. It's starting to feel like I actually am establishing myself in the arts community here in the midwest. There are so many opportunities, it all takes time to pick and choose the right fit for my artwork.
Paintings in the show:
"Autumn Sky", 6" x 6"
"Pathway", 24" x 18"
"Pollinator", 6" x 6"
Last bit of news - it's taken several years but Linda Robertson Womack is finishing details on her soon to be published e-book, "Embracing Encaustic", and yours truly is one of the featured artists included in the book. I will hear in the next few weeks when the book will be released and I am thrilled. The book is an excellent tool for beginners to advanced encaustic artists in search of new inspiration, studio tips and plenty of visuals with different techniques describing how to paint with beeswax.
Painting to be included in the e-book:
"Sunday on Snow Street", 8" x 8"
There are over 70 encaustic artists in the book and each has explained their technique accompanied with a sample of their work. I have a hard copy of the 2nd edition but the e-book will be less expensive with more content. As more information becomes available, I will share it here.
