Sketching with coffee

sketching

These are the things that landed on my kitchen table last night. Less phone, more sketching.

I’ve been unsubscribing from emails. I would like an art thing or a health thing or a spiritual thing or a marketing thing and then the solicitations would arrive ALL DAY LONG! It was akin to being in a batting cage and having baseballs flung at me without having the chance to hit any of them without the next one coming. I have Shiny Object Syndrome in the Age of the Squirrel. The information I subscribed to seemed interesting at the time, but there wasn’t any content.

I just kept deleting things in my inbox without even reading any of it. Ridiculous. I like having all my notifications cleared. It’s like getting to an even number when getting gas. If I go to $20.01, then I have to take it to $20.10. So annoying.

Less information, more life. I love to research and anything I need to know or learn will land in my life exactly when I need it. My word this year is synchronicity. So far it’s working beautifully.

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.
