"Cape Cod Light"
Each of these paintings is post card size, 4" x 6", mixed media encaustic on 300 lb. watercolor paper. I will be donating these to the post card show at the International Encaustic Conference that I am attending the first week of June. The conference is in Provincetown, MA and fortunately I have been there; I had specific references for each painting.
The conference is an incredible opportunity to learn about art from the best and most knowledgable artists I know, it is also a wonderful networking opportunity. I hope even though my paintings are representational landscapes, the work won't look out of place with all of the amazing abstract artists that will be attending.

I have been planning out my studio time and events carefully these days as I have a part time job. I started working at Bloomingdales as a bridal registry consultant and even though its part time, it forces me to organize my art making and commitments more than I am used to doing. I think it will get easier but for now it's a challenge.
My last bit of news, I was accepted into the 3rd of three art festivals I submitted work to, and I am probably going to participate in all of them ... that will allow me exhibition opportunities in May, June and early August. Fingers crossed that the weather will be on my side, but with global warming and such it's a bit of a concern.
