I love the way this piece (encaustic on cradled board)came together. It started with a secret code book I found in a antique shop. I fell in love with the symbols on the cover of the small booklet and just knew it would somehow work it's way into my art.
I decided to use the Chinese code written with walnut ink on a piece of handmade paper, can you decode what I wrote?

This winter when the studio window froze shut, I wasn't able to work with my encaustic (hot wax), you definitely need some exhaust system...mine is a window and fan. This is when I discovered (through the magic of the blog world) cold wax! It could be used with oil paint which I love most and it didn't need to be fused yet allows you to create all kinds of texture.' Summer' was my first piece and once again I was in love!

'Far & Away' was the third piece I did and just had to add in the map , so technically it is a mixed media piece.

It was fun watching the dancers look through her sketch book from the year long project to spot themselves.
Congratulation Julie!!! You can see more of her work here.
