New Blog for Cabrillo Encaustic Class


Today we had show and tell, not really critiques. We all looked at the work that has been produced in the Cabrillo Arts Encaustic Class for the first week. Same instruction, same demos, same paints. Everyone does completely different work. I've seen this happen over and over, whether I'm the teacher or the student. Everybody gets the same info and equipment, and it all comes out with each individual's expression. How cool is that?
It ocurred to me that it would be great for us to all have community around our Summer of Wax experience. We all have great resources to share, etc. etc. So I've been telling them all about Blogging and how much I love it. Tonite I set up a Blog for all of them. Each one of them can contribute. Roberta within minutes put up a post with fabulous paper sources. Ahh, the power of Blogging! So here goes another experiment....I give you Wax Max.

A great photo I received today from Rose Sellery at the Cabrillo Gallery. The best darn photo of Dotty Stripes ever!

okay, you and your sweetheart might kill me too, but I've tagged the both of you on my blog. I figure you're too busy with teaching and she's up in Washington, so by the time you actually see me again your rage may have cooled to a rolling boil....

Hi Dotty Stripes,
I also work with encaustic wax and have taken a workshop from Eva Marie and plan to take another from Danielle at RF later this month and then I will be demonstrating at the Alaska State Fair. I love your blog and want to be a part of this network of artists who love encaustics, can I add you to my blog?
