What's On My Easel

Thinking today about Australia. My friend Ro Bruhn let me know this morning that she's reserved a room for the Melbourne Cold Wax Class that's scheduled for May 11-12th. Now I can finally make the announcement official; two cold wax class opportunities for my friends in Australia in May! We'll share painting as well as mealtimes, getting to know each other, and talking about art, dreams, all sorts of things we art people talk about when we get together. This is what I love about teaching. Meeting new art friends and sharing stories, laughing, getting to know each other. I love the cultural exchange and making new friends.

So first to Melbourne at the Beaumaris classroom and then on the following weekend I'll travel up to Jervis Bay to be with Tracy Verdugo and teach the cold wax class again to some wonderful new friends there. I'm so excited to make this trip, my first trip to a country that I've loved so much from afar. Here is the link to read about the class at Jervis Bay.

This is short because I'm heading out for a breather (may be away from the computer off and on). The painting above is cold wax. It's 20x20" in a 2" deep cradled panel and I'm calling it "Tumble". I'm loving working in cold wax so much; it really grows on you. I look forward to sharing it and myself with my friends in Australia. Please consider joining one of my classes there. I'd love to meet you. xo

Beautiful work Judy. Has such a wonderful flow and motion to it.

I am so so happy for you making the big trip to Aussie Land! How exciting to meet the artists I've come to know and love on line via their blogs. I will travel in spirit with you. Will you see Ro's beautiful art books in person? Lucky you!

Actually on May 10 when you will be THERE I will be in Portland, OR at a class with Seth Apter! Such a small world we live in anymore!

I picked up a new Cloth, Paper, Scissors mag at Barnes and Nobles the other day and opened it up and said: "That's Judy Wise ART" before I found your name on it! Of course I was right! Sweet!

And one last thing, looking at your art studio here I love seeing your wax "cooker" recognizing it as a pan I used to cook meals in MANY years ago. ;0

You are going to have such a grand, good time in Australia. And you will make so many new cold wax enthusiast so happy with your classes! Wish I could join you there, but I do expect a FULL report on all things Oz when you return.

You, Ro and Tracy! Wow. Now that is what I call the perfect trifecta!
