While doing some early spring cleaning in the studio I ended up sorting through some old small works that had been set aside for one reason or another . Sometimes time is a blessing and you can get a fresh perspective on things when you look at it with fresh eyes.
A couple of them just needed something to make them pop a bit and enhance what was already there. On the third one I thought of adding a bit of collage with some of the encaustic painted papers from the workshop . I ended up just going wherever the path led me and it changed into an entirely new painting . And that is ok too.
Sometimes you have to take a few wrong turns before you are set on the right path. It's like taking the scenic route with your painting :)

Supplies used this week:
oil paint sticks
encaustic painted collage papers
If you would like to join me for lots of fun learning my encaustic paper painting process I am sharing it in 2 different live workshops at Artiscape Artist Gathering in April in Columbus Ohio.
Here is a little video for the "our house' encaustic 3d sculpture and mini journal workshop where we will be creating these beautiful papers and binding them in a hand made journal and using them as collage on our encaustic house sculpture .
