Waxing....

So, I told you already about being accepted into the CSArts project we have here in Portland, Maine?  No, well, it's like those farm CSAs...except you buy a 3 month or 6 month subscription and you get art instead of veggies!  I think it's a brilliant concept and was eager to learn about it and grateful to be included in the first season of it!  If you click here, you'll find all the details.

Really seems like a great deal to me, especially if you've always wanted to start collecting art.  This is an inexpensive way to start your collection with small pieces. 

So I'll bet your next question is, what are you making Ann?  When I first signed on, I was thinking of doing my digital collages, but the CSArts folks wanted me to make some encaustic paintings!  These are the first two:





They are members of the Geometry of Desire series.  The one on the right, "Vertices" has 24 carat gold leaf collaged into it.  The are small, 4" square.  So, unless you sign up for a CSArt subscription, these are unavailable to the public.  Unless you want to commission one from me, which is always a possibility!

Onward into the Future!

I'm a sorry excuse for a blogger since I haven't posted anything since mid-November, but you'll forgive me, right?   The day after Madeleines closed, JK & I jumped on a plane and flew out to Sacramento to visit friends and spend Thanksgiving with his sister, our niece and nephew and their families.  It was great fun to see how big all the kids have gotten plus we are making plans to see niece Renee and her daughter Hannah in NYC in April and I scored Hamilton tickets for us!

But that's then and this is now, but sometimes one leads to another like the fact that the following piece of art is my entry into the #TwitterArtExhibit (click here for more info).

Come to find out the show continues to April 26th, so we'll be able to see the work at Trygve Gallery while we're there.

It was good to have Christmas at home this year.  We had a great time hosting friends and neighbors for Christmas Day dinner....and next thing you know, it's a new year!
