First Place Award for the Showcase Exhibit November 02 2014, 0 Comments
Last night was the opening reception for the Hidden in the Hills Showcase.
I strolled through the show, sipping lemon water, meeting the guests and artists and enjoying the autumn Sonoran Desert air - let in by the doors open to the terrace. It's a good feeling to get out from the studio and enjoy what other artists are creating.
The guests were called to attention by the Town Mayor, Vincent Francia, who opens with a lovely nod to the arts and proceeds to call the winners of the show. He calls my name for First Place.
So I won an award. The biggest one for the exhibit - and I almost didn't enter the show.
It's easy to let opportunities go by. This season, I stated that I would say "yes" to opportunities and do the work to engage in them. I'm grateful that this opportunity said yes back.
Two paintings in the show: Effervesce and Dungarees

Water World - New Encaustic February 03 2013, 2 Comments
I finished this large encaustic, Water World, on Wednesday and hung it at Celebration of Fine Art on Thursday.
It's 24"h x 80"w and framed in a floater frame - so much fun to do this size!
New Encaustics - In the Studio January 19 2013, 0 Comments
New encaustic works in progress... lined up on tables in the studio (other works on the walls are my acrylics).
These each have several coats of encaustic gesso , then two layers of beeswax and resin, and now... I'm ready to paint!
As each one is completed, I'll post it here and on my Facebook Page.
Then they'll go on to my space at the Celebration of Fine Art.
I'd love to hear your thoughts and comments on them!
