An abstract floral series I have been working on, I am loving this particular color palette with just a lovely hint of coral, greys , and this light sap green. 
These are now available in the Etsy shop !
I haven't had a lot of finished originals in the Etsy shop , so I have been trying to be good lately and get some listed. 




 My new studio buddy in training is 4 months old today ! 
He has his final shots coming on Friday and he should be good to go
 anywhere and everywhere :)
And , yes he has a LOT of wrinkles LOL.

Wax on Wednesdays ! With One Single Color

Cycling 
Working with other mediums I feel often gives me a fresh perspective,
 and new ideas when I come back to encaustic.  
 Usually it is with mediums that "play nicely with" encaustic , such
as oils , soft pastels, inks, watercolors, etc. 
 But, there is always the draw of immediate satisfaction and gratification of using lots of wonderful paint at once with
acrylics. 
 This is a small series of original abstract florals  that is now available in my Etsy shop here:

Wax on Wednesdays! One Color Palette 

 The most common question I receive from those artists getting started with encaustic revolves around the expense of building your collection . Encaustic paints do tend to be on the pricey side and the bigger the painting the faster they go ! 

Well what if I told you you could walk right in to your art store and buy just one encaustic color along with white and get started painting !
In this weeks video I demonstrate what you can do with just one encaustic paint color , and white. 
You can still create layers , lots of contrast, depth , and interest with just one color on your palette!
