I went to a lecture last night at the VAE on "Encaustic Painting" (painting with hot wax). Local artist Sharon DiGiulio was the lecturer, and I must say, I enjoyed her as much as learning about encaustics! She is a hoot~ I learned a lot in the short 2 hours we had, and we were able to play a little bit with the wax. My creation is above- it was really very cool. It may be a while before I can delve into encaustics outside of a workshop, but I definitely see it in my future!
