I had a solo show of my encaustic paintings a year ago February. Our local arts council sponsors excellent cultural performances throughout the year and they invite one artist to show their work at each performance. It's a great way to get exposure in the community and the arts council gets a commission on sales made at the concert. Here are a few of my favourite pieces from the show.

I'll have to work on my photography. The shiny finish to the encaustics is a bit of a challenge for me.
My Etsy shop has been "on vacation" as long as my blog has so I'm gearing up to get active there again, too. I sell locally through our Lakes Artisan Centre and at craft fairs but I haven't been travelling to sell nor teaching workshops for the past couple of years. Perhaps it's time? I've recently added jewelry making to the list of things I do and I seem to be a bit obsessed!
Another birthday has just passed and each year I reflect on how I'm spending my life hours and evaluating how I want to spend them in the years ahead. Sometimes my head feels like it might explode with everything bouncing around in there but from what I hear, I'm not alone!
