It's been quiet in the studio since the online class ended. I sort of threw myself over the finish line and curled up in a ball. I had planned to do a journal class in January but that was before I knew how satiated I would feel. Now I just want to lie back and stare at the ceiling.
Four weeks of being consumed by the computer; tunnel visioned and in suspended animation. Is this how gamers feel?
Anyway, I'm starting to wiggle my toes again and wanted to make an announcement.
The Hot Wax eBook is available for pre-order and will be out to you in time for Christmas. Twenty days of encaustic lessons; you can read what a few of the students had to say at the link. I'm so proud of it. I can recommend it whole heartedly to anyone who wants to know everything I know about wax.
The persimmons are nearly ripe and most of the leaves have blown off the tree.
The studio waits patiently.
Pink lemons; a new fruit this winter in our stores. The outside is green and yellow stripes; really pretty. They taste like a cross between a lemon and a lime.
The tree by our driveway; another kind of lemon. That green rosebush under it was covered with lavender roses this spring; a completely different palette. Fall is so wistful.
I think I've spent only 2 days in here in the last month.
Still working on these guys. Slowly. Slowly I go. xo
