We just came back from a trip out to Chicago and I am feeling pretty bone-weary tired. But I am looking forward to Stephanie Lee’s workshop hosted by Trish Seggebruch taking place tomorrow. I really don’t do very “well” in workshops. I hardly ever finish anything. I kind of flounder around actually. I get distracted and I find it hard to focus. I guess I don’t work well with others! But at the same time, it is a jolt to the system to be around the hum created by the creative energy of others working in one room.

I’m there to absorb, learn, experiment mainly. And then go to my studio and work out what I hopefully absorbed on my own time. In my own space. With all my stuff.

counting, encaustic, 5×7 inches

I am excited to announce that I will be participating in a group show called “Women in Wax” at Expressive Arts Studio in Everett, Washington coming up in March. The show was put together by Karon Leigh who I will see tomorrow afternoon to hand off three of my paintings. The painting above is one of the paintings that will hang in the show. The opening reception will be Friday March 7th from 6pm – 9pm.

    In my experience, workshops are to learn a new technique, and it's not important to finish that particular piece. Glean what you can from the experience, and use it in another project. Anna
