Encaustic conference

My brain is full! So many wonderful sessions from so many talented artists over the course of the last few days. I met many lively, interesting artists doing terrific work and learned a lot. See my sidebar for links to many of the artists' sites.

I was lucky enough to take a workshop from Kay Walkingstick and that was incredibly useful. I came away with much food for thought about how to push my work further to better communicate the ideas that drive it.

Encaustic conference

This week I'm off to the 2nd National Encaustic Conference. I'm really excited - it's going to be a chance to learn at lot, look a lot and be utterly immersed in my favorite medium for an intense week.

Also gives me a good chance to feel guilty since I'm leaving my kids to get through finals week without me. Guess we'll all survive but I'm not going off entirely relaxed and focused. Always pulled in a couple directions - the reality of working motherhood.
