Yes I was....painting with them. Maybe it was because I'm still processing photos from The Maine Dish - that I will post at some point next week. I had one started on a canvas that had some encaustic wax on it (I had used the wax to make a print on mulberry paper then coated with wax adhere to the small 10 x 8" canvas. Didn't like the way it looked, so I pulled it off and used just a frame so ambient light could filter through from the back. I had started to paint a bit on it and then just let it sit. I find I sometimes have to do that with real time paintings.
