Welcome to my newest blog!

For those of you who know me you will remember that I have had a blog using Wordpress.com for quite a while.  This blog is still active but since there are numerous constraints using that platform I have decided to duplicate posts and insert them into blogger.  Hence this new blog!

If you would like to follow me just glance to the right of this screen and click the 'follow me' button so that you won't miss out on any new information in the future.

As the days go on I will be posting descriptions here to help explain encaustic art - my favoured medium.  Just as a taster here are a few of my paintings for you to consider.

Spilling over with dark background This one is entitled Spilling Over.

As you will see in many of my paintings, water elements have a great influence in my life.  I love the depth of colour within the shadows and the vibrancy that draws you in which can only be achieved in this amazing medium of painting with molten wax.  Green close up for Susie

This was a painting I created for my daughter.  Although the camera has caught the light in the centre it seems to enhance the rest of the painting, don't you think?

Remember to make this blog one of your favourites so that you can follow me during my journey with encaustics!

This encaustic medium is intriguing. I'll have to do further research. I was just reading about using beeswax in collage work.

Just curious, too, about your experience of limitations with the wordpress platform. I've been on blogger for over two years, and was just going to start a new blog at wordpress. Thanks for any insight you can provide about your experience.

Beautiful! The only thing I've ever used wax for is in lip balm. :) I never would have thought to paint with it.
