Updates to Website

I have recently posted all of my work so far from my current ‘Folklore’ series under the “Current Work – Folktale Series (2013-2017)” section on the lefthand side of the home page, and under the “2010-2013 Paintings” subpage, found under “Previous Work” from the home page.  I still have images to post to the 2010-2013 section from the “Tapestry Series”, which was my first series of encaustic paintings, so check back soon!  More to come under “Previous Work” for prior years.

Summer class roundup!

My summer Evening Basic Drawing class at the St. Louis Artist’s Guild has recently wrapped up, so I thought I’d share some images of my amazing students’ work!

The first few drawings of teacups are from the first class, before instruction began, then pictures of a few of the classes, and finally, the drawings from the final project of the last class.  So proud of everyone’s progress!

 

 

Next class begins June 8!

I will be teaching Evening Basic Drawing again this summer on Thursday nights from 6-8:30 pm beginning in 2 weeks on June 8.  The class is 8 weeks long and runs through July 27.    If you are interested in joining, sign up today!  The deadline to register is Wednesday, June 7.  There are still seats available & I’d love to see you!

Encaustic mixed media demo on Sunday, September 21, from 1-3 pm

Hi, everyone!

Weekend Studio Time Part Deux

Loki piece after “burning in” last night’s oil painting. (Gently heating the painted area & wax to bond the oil paint to the beeswax layer below.)

Starting to develop the branch and the golden apple, but they still need work:

Weekend Studio Time

Working on my encaustics today. The apple is a laser transfer, and I plan on painting the branch, leaves, and possibly highlights on the apple in oil paint.

Did a laser jet transfer on the other one I’m working on, but I’m not sure I like the position. I think I’m gonna scrape the spider off and add one slightly bigger and a little more lower and left.

“Loki and Idun’s Apple” at the end of the night:

“Anansi” piece – spider resized & repositioned. I think this one looks much better:
