New Work, New Classes

posted in: Musings | 0

January 23, 2013 new post: Check out the Exhibitions and Classes section.  I am beginning a 4 week session of Intro to Sumi-e Painting next week (Jan 28 – Feb 18), and a one day Gyotaku workshop in March too.

Earlier I shared with you some of my new explorations in Encaustic painting.  I have entered a piece in the Art Associations members show called “Salon”.  It is the first public exposure for one of my encaustics.  I love the piece but we will see what others think.  The entry is called “Akaka Falls”, from a photo I took when Paul and I visited Hawaii last year.  Here is a front view and from the side so you can see the dimensional quality a little.  It has layers of clear and tinted translucent wax on top of a p’o mo watercolor painting on a gold shikishi board.
