My encaustic alchemist palette. I sit in my art space in an upstairs dormer room of my home, fan blowing out the open window to keep the air clear. I can't begin the thought of cleaning up my space until this creation process is complete. When I commit to the time it takes to melt down the wax in my old electric skillet and flow into the creation process, I typically am able to complete five original works of art. This productive time seems to occur a few times each week. With the show date arriving November 20 & 21st, I am on a sturdy path to having a well stocked art booth for the weekend.
