Lately I have been working on my Valentines. I personally make about 40 of them for friends and family, a tradition that started with Lcat about 10 years ago. I still have quite a few to make, but am hopeful that they will all be completed and sent out before Vday.

Making my dot

Last weekend I worked with encaustics for the first time. I had no idea what I was doing and it was a little intimidating at first, but lots of fun once I got started. I noticed that the second I put on the first layer of wax, i immediately scraped it off. It was hard to just let go and make a mess. I started a little painting of an iron, it was awful, but I'm glad I had the opportunity to make my first dot.

I was once a pair

This painting was painted for the "layers" exhibit at Surface Gallery. The show will be up till the 27th of Feb.

The ghost of eggs on toast

Think I'll go a walk now

Don't sit me down

This painting was part of a series I did for the "Layers" exhibit at Surface Gallery. This little painting sold at the opening to my very first art teacher.
