26 Letters, One Year, and Doing What I Love

26 Letters for FILM26
encaustic on birch 5x5
 I have two creative things I love to do - painting and photography.  Painting has taken the driver seat lately - but that's OK because I know my camera is there for me at any time. 
I took on a project last year to combine my two creative loves - and this is the result.  Every two weeks I photoed myself with one of my encaustic letter tiles to travel the alphabet for the year of 2012.  This year, I don't have such lofty goals - but the word I picked for 2013 will keep me motivated.

I'm back in my studio as of today.  Its been almost a month since I've turned on the palettes and warmed up the wax.  I'm looking forward to 2013 and continuing to share this artful journey.  Happy Friday everyone!

  18. What a fantastic project. I did 26 characters in 2010, one face for each letter and it was really challenging and fun. Hope you are enjoying some studio and painting time this weekend!
