Rusted Drawers and Demo Encaustics

 Demo encaustics from the demo I did at Island City Gallery, the back drop, my new old rusty drawers.

A great vintage find! Metal new rusting tools. They already have great marks on them.

The Contemplation Opening at the Island City Gallery, A lovely gallery in the heart of Winona MN.
The Show is there until Oct 30.  It is a beautiful town to visit especially this time of year, the bluffs along the river will be ablaze with fall color this month!

Did my first demo, it was great fun!

Found this lovely book in a thrift store yesterday along with this fat brush.  The front pages are a lovely chocolate brownie marble mix !!! I love brown it is every where in my home in every shade. I took photos of some of my favorites.

Flowers and Vases

Having a break from rust printing and encaustic work, I took out the gouache to play. I think I got a little obsessed , still going after about 50 flowers.
