Once again it's been quite a while since I've updated my blog. :( Seems I need to learn a little more about how to balance things in my life better. Things are a little hectic right now but nothing that can't be managed. A few health issues have come up. I'm going to need surgery in December, right before Christmas! Nothing life threatening, just something that has to be tended to.

I'm taking a wonderful painting class that has me very excited. It's called Paint Free (referring to the way you should approach your painting...free of any preconceived notions) and it's taught by the awesome artist Wyanne. Learn more about her and her wonderful art and classes here. I absolutely love this class. It has really been a great experience and I highly recommend it.

Other things going on: I'm stocked up on encaustic supplies and plan to really dig in this Winter and do some serious work with those. So, lots of things in the works.

The piece at the top of this post is a digital one I put together using various elements from Scrapbook Graphics. Tangie Baxter, I believe, supplied most of these elements in one of her art journal kits. This is exactly how I feel lately: trying to balance all of the different things going on lately. Hopefully I'll do a better job of it in the coming weeks!

Balance is key and this is a beautiful creation. I just saw an article in the new Somerset Studio magazine on encaustics and thought of you- an amazing art form. I will send healing thoughts your way for your surgery and a very happy Thanksgiving to you and yours this week!
Hugs back,

For some reason this picture reminds me of myself. Cool!
