    Hi Bridgette,
    This is so exciting! I wish you a fabulous turnout and lots of creative juju for Friday evening.
    The painting shown here is one of my favorites (is it one of the two in the show?). See you in November!

    as someone who just finished two collages in which I finished off with beeswax-- with the hope of moving into doing more encaustics-- want to congratulate you and wish you the best during the event.
