Encaustic workshop

I'm teaching an encaustic workshop at Yourist Studio Gallery this summer:

Introduction to Encaustic Painting

Saturday, June 28/ Sunday, June 29, 10am-4pm
Coffee and bagels at 9:30 - Potluck lunch at 12.

The workshop will be two days long - those new to encaustic can take both
days and people with some experience may prefer to just take the second day.
More details on the Yourist site soon.

Global Mourning

I read a column in the January issue of Wired by Clive Thompson about the psychological effects of global warming. An Australian philosopher named Glenn Albrecht has coined a new word, solastalgia, to describe the mourning for a lost environment. He says it's a "form of homesickness one gets when one is still at 'home.'" This really resonates with me since it's a huge part of what informs my current series of shrines and altars.

show of my work

There's a show of my work is at Yourist Studio Gallery at 1133 Broadway in Ann Arbor through March.

This is "cloud/sky/channel". It's one of the pieces in the exhibition. It's 18" x 24" and is encaustic and mixed media on panel.
