Coming off a little break in the studio. I’ve been really busy for the whole of the spring getting ready for various juried and two person shows. I had so much going on I needed a little break.

Now, it’s time to get myself back in gear to attend the 4th Annual Encaustic Conference to be held at Montserratt College of Art, Beverly, MA.

I’ve never been to this part of the country before, much less the Boston/Beverly/Salem area. I am SO looking forward to meeting many artists from around the country..and beyond who are coming to attend this conference. I, also, signed up for a post conference workshop with a much admired artist who will be teaching there…..Daniella Woolf.  I use text or writing in my work now and then and would like to investigate this sort of additions to my encaustic or other paintings. This workshop addresses this subject in more depth.

I’m sorry my only day off will be a Monday when so many art venues are closed. OR, maybe this is good and I will get out of my art ‘looking’ and just be able to look at other interesting aspects of the area. it all leads back to art anyway for me….whether I intend to look at art or discuss art or absorb experiences that come through in my work at a later time.

I DO hope it is cooler there than it is here in northeastern TX at the moment…..mid and upper 90’s.
