As an artist, there are a couple of scents that fuel my desire to create art – block printing ink, glue, old paper – and beeswax.
Oh, that delicious, warm, inviting smell!! I LOVE that natural scent. And right now, I’m in the thick of it, because I’m taking an encaustic class at the Sharon Lynne Wilson Center for the Arts in Brookfield! 🙂
I have my second of four class sessions tomorrow. I can’t wait! Last week was my first and it was fantastic from the first minute I got there. The instructor, Matt Luther, is one of those instructors who immediately put you at ease. He has an easygoing style that’s just so conducive to creating! I strive to be that way when I teach and I hope I succeed. He’s one to emulate, for sure.
Here are the two pieces that I made during our first session! I haven’t felt this free during a class in a LONG time. It was 100% enjoyable! I’m so looking forward to tomorrow – we’re doing portraits and landscapes! 😀
