encaustic and oil on cedar block 6 1/4 x 11 x 5 1/2
Faces 28 and 29
Today is an exciting day.
Milestone #1 - A selection (a small selection) of my paintings are out in the world, hanging in a retail space for sale. Its like a major milestone - one that was so very far away but I've actually arrived and its really exciting. Now, I will just wait for them to find their new homes where they belong :)
Milestone #2 - I completed 29 Faces. All 29!! The one above is really not quite done but pretty close. A friend of mine gave me some cedar scrap blocks from a project. I've put one of them on feet and have painted The Couple on one side. I'm deciding what will accompany them on the remaining sides - a house with a picket fence? a dog? a cake? or perhaps nothing.. only one side painted. I'll share the entire process and the remaining sides when its complete.
The third milestone - This is my 300th post on this blog. Hard to believe that actually. I started in May of 2010. I'm going to have a celebration with a giveaway - but not today... coming soon.
The Fourth - I actually committed and signed up to take an encaustic painting workshop at WaxWorks West in California. I leave next Friday and spend the weekend painting faces in wax with Charlie Levin. Actually booking and pushing the button to commit was major - but once that was done, the excitement settled in.
The Fifth - I got up the guts to tell my story and be the featured artist for PPF this week. Took me all year to do that.
And... one more - I have a new facebook page and I would love for you to come be my friend :)
Thanks to Ayala Art for hosting 29 Faces. What fun! So many creative artists participating - so inspiring. Also, many thanks to the artisits of PPF for being so supportive.
