sharing an INSPIRED moment

Sharing this Inspired moment! For all of you from the Ontario area, I've added a retreat close to your home! Muskegon, Michigan this September! Check it out~www.pbsartist.com

Encaustic with Patricia Baldwin Seggebruch
Lots and lots of loving at Inspired I tell ya!!
Trisha is Fabulous! And I love her Encaustic Waxes -- We had so much fun playing with wax and transfers, incisors (sp?), pan pastels, stamps, etc. Gotta LOVE wax!!

And.... I'm so excited to have more wax classes in a couple of weeks when Nancy teaches at Mixed Minded too!! What a waxy month! ...but I digress *smile*

Here is the 8x8 canvas that I made in Trisha's class. Thanks Trisha!! You're awesome sweetie!!

Encaustic Mixed Media: Innovative Surfaces and Techniques for working in wax

Ready, set, go! Lucky me lucky me! I got to write a second encaustic book and am thrilled to be seeing it coming to life! Due out in August, Encaustic Mixed Media is an indulgence in everything I've been putting my hand to since Encaustic Workshop hit the shelves in February of 2009. Delving into the hardware store, art supply, craft and thrift stores with eyes wide open to possibilities, this book offered me the opportunity to dispel 'no's' and prove the 'yes's' in encaustic rule! Look forward to posts in the coming weeks highlighting the mixed media products and techniques developed for Encaustic Mixed Media~things from plaster and tar to panpastel and wood icing, nothing is left untouched and unincorporated :) in love. trish

Awaiting departure for Phoenix for the International Art Materials Trade Show. Looking forward to the opportunity thanks to an invitation from C&T Publishing to exhibit in their booth with my TAP (transfer artist paper) kit and the whole line! Feeling blessed despite only 4 hours of sleep under my belt.....
