My creative space: falling in love with encaustic
I could really just sum up encaustic work in four words: what's not to love?
It's just so easy to get kitted up. It takes all of five minutes to learn. The results are quick, not to mention hauntingly beautiful.
I learnt how to make encaustic art last weekend.
Today, it took me all of fifteen minutes to set up, set an intention, make the above ten pieces, then pack up. Most of the pieces you see will be given away as gifts . But a select few will remain with me and likely provide hours of serenity, gazing for images that have meaning only to me.
If you want to get a sense of what I mean, take a look at the below with an inquisitive mind and an open heart. What do you see?
If you are interested to know how to make art like this (and how to receive the messages embedded in the art), then I'd recommend you get in touch with my friend Julia.

Whatever your creative passion, I hope you are tumbling head over heels in love today.
