embracing encaustic

 |  May 28, 2008

Yesterday afternoon I received my contributor’s copy of Linda Womack’s book Embracing Encaustic. Linda was so kind to include two of my encaustic pieces in this revised 2nd edition. I have not had a chance yet to sit still and read through it all, but I have flipped through the pages and the photos are wonderful.


There are about 25 artists featured in the book with information on how their featured piece was created. I can’t wait to read it and be inspired to try some new techniques. I already feel inspired by just looking at the photos.

I believe Linda is planning a few book release parties in Portland, Oregon as well as one in Beverly, Massachusetts during the Second Annual Encaustic Conference. I so wish I were going to that. There’s always next year.

    Cheryl, I can't wait to see what you do after your classes. Your artwork lends so well to encaustics.

    Bridgette-
    I just got back from the Encaustics Conference. So sorry you didn't come as I would have loved to meet you in person.

    You work continues to inspire me.

    By the way, Linda sold out of books, but somehow that didn't surprise us all.
