Sketching instead

Every morning I disappear into my phone. Where does that get me? How does that advance my skills? I sketched these pretty flowers from my husband. Is it perfect? No. I don’t care. It taps me in to the person I was who drew everyday. I’m working with values here mostly. Getting back to basics. So satisfying. #sketching #valuestudy #gettingbacktobasics #learning #meditative

Encaustic Wax on Cigar Boxes

Art, Cigar Box, Encaustic Wax, Pastel

I love to take close up photos of flowers, mushrooms, and bugs. I translated some of these flowers onto the bottom of cigar boxes using encaustic wax. Encaustic medium is beeswax and resin. I heat up the beeswax and brush it onto the base. I also use a heat gun to fuse the layers and add pastels for the colors. My Flower Series is hanging at Magnolia Foods http://magnoliafoods.com/ until October 1.

I hope you like them as much as I enjoyed making them.
