Stuff Going On

Yes, I know I haven't posted in ages. I'm so sorry, Snowflakes, but you see Queen Flake has been very busy.

For starters, I've been in the studio making a bunch of new encaustic pieces. This is one from the lot.

I also finished off my wonderful Sketchbook from The Sketchbook Project, so that's now in the mail. (Look for that to come to a venue near you very soon now since, after all, those who complete sketchbooks are rock stars with crayons, of sorts. I think. Well, let's just say maybe on a good day and leave it at that.) The sketchbook was really a lot of work, more than I had expected, so I've been taking a bit of a breather after it, to sort of settle down and get ready for the stuff that's next up in the queue.

My sketchbook did come out well enough, and I think it's a fun enough topic that I've decided to turn it into a Blurb book, so look for that coming at some point to my Blurb gallery. Speaking of the Blurb gallery, the Texas Wax book is now complete and we're getting ready to place our group order, so look for an announcement about that sometime soon, if you haven't placed your order in with me already.

I've got a show coming up in Colorado and another in Oregon (if I can get my act together.) There's also the upcoming iPhone show at Studio2Gallery, which I'm over the moon about-how fun is that going to be? There's been some press on that one and it's shaping up to be a fun show so I can hardly wait.

I also have an upcoming encaustic workshop in Austin that I'll be attending. Yes, it's true, the wonderful and talented Patricia Saggebruch is coming to my area and I can hardly wait for that. I'll be taking a weekend workshop with her and I'm so looking forward to learning lots of techniques, tips, and tricks, not to mention just spending some time in studio with her.

February will find me doing NaBloPoMo for the month. Since February is a month devoted to all things romance, this time around my theme is going to be "Things I Love." I plan on posting something I love, one thing that I love, each and every day in February, so look for that coming to the blog soon enough.

Finally, I'm helping hang an encaustic show this weekend up at the Georgetown Library so look for more details on that to be posted soon as well.

January is always a busy month and this has been no exception. I'm really looking forward to getting out into the galleries a bit before the heat of summer kicks in and I won't feel like doing all that much again. I hope you've all been well and are enjoying an equally busy but fun January. Not too snowed in, are you? Gosh, I hope not.

I really hope January allows you to get out, take some pictures, paint, or just do what it is that you do best.

Until next time...
