What a great week-end! Two whole days of just creating. The workshop was given by Artists / Photographers Leah McDonald and Athena Petra. I got to be part of it along with a few other artists most of them photographers. I learned not only about painting with encaustics but also about encaustics and photography. Following is a visual journey of my week-end.

One of my “Hat” photographs glued to the substrate, covered with Bees Wax and painted with oil paints.
My paintings with encaustics will be up tomorrow.
This is my 2nd workshop in the last few months. I took another one back in December with encaustic artist Lorraine Glessner
