There are more images posted now with my encaustic group The Beeswax Team.  This holiday exchange was so fun that I hope we do it again VERY soon.  I loved making the 6"x6" piece I made for Beth and it was so nice to receive a piece from someone that I've never met before...
Please take a moment and check out the other encaustic paintings that people got:

Creating A Triptych

I have been working on a triptych encaustic piece this week-end.  It is my first time painting one so I'm pretty excited about it.  I'm going to be submitting it for an exhibition that will be coming up later in the year.  I'm in stage one which is doing the first couple of layers with paint... I have used acrylic paints and water so far and will be adding wax and pigment in the next stage... I also bought several 8"x8" boards that I will be painting more sheep on... I'm really enjoying these little guys... They make me smile!  :o)
Here are the images that I worked on last night in my Seattle studio.  I hope you enjoy them!  I'll post more images as I progress along and then let you guys know if I actually get selected to show my triptych!!  (eee!)

Dreaming About The Year Ahead...

I've been dreaming about the year ahead of me and I've been feeling excited and hopeful...  I feel the momentum of a small dream growing day by day and feel myself getting closer to the life that I've imagined and am living in my head...  I'm also careful to appreciate what I have now and one of my challenges is to enjoy the process along the way to accomplishing my goals.
I wanted to share four encaustic paintings that I painted a couple of weeks ago with you... They are made with beeswax, pigment, tissue paper and oil paint.  The size is 8"x8" on board with 1.5" cradle.  These sheep I originally painted as oil paintings about a year or so ago and all of them sold.  I've been missing their cheerful little faces so I brought them back in a little bit different medium.  I hope you enjoy them!  :o)
