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.
