encaustic, wine, fun

Last thursday night, I had the wonderful opportunity to paint and demo encaustic at the gallery that represents me.....gallery26

On my way to the gallery, which is about 30 minutes from my house located in the lovely hillcrest area, I began to feel nervous. and I wondered why....i have painted in many classes with other people looking on and then I realized that I have never painted with my own style in front of anyone....out on display for all passers by. But i will say after I got started how much fun and liberating it was. :-)


here are some photos of me painting away. my friend Larry was snapping away and laughing at my little camera. we all (me, my hubby, larry, mandy) went out afterwards and ate turkey burgers and drank wine. much fun was had.
