full head and happy heart

I just got back from a conference entirely on encaustic painting.  It was a whirlwind: 36 hours spent in the car with my best friend in the world (other than my husband of course) – Kathryn, and hours and hours and hours of wax madness.  Needless to say, for many reasons, my head is full and my heart is happy.  

 

A few pictures I wanted to share right away from the trip:

And something to whet your appetite.  Waxy art that is very similar to an upcoming project I’m dreaming up of illuminated seed pods:  artist Lori Fredette
