Virginia for Christmas

We went to Virginia for Christmas and had a great time. It's a little sad visiting...I get overwhelmed by the incredible natural beauty of the mountains. The view from Timothy's fathers house was breathtaking. After returning home I got many new goodies for my studio and for my encaustic. I was able to clean up the studio and give it a much needed facelift. I will never underestimate the value in a 7ft folding table or a draw sacred place to draw. I resurrected old easels, an antique barrel chair, and even created a shop area in the other half of the basement. Thanks to my father I am the proud owner of a torch, chop saw, nail gun and a ton of masonite...thanks dad:)

Wheeler School Holiday Art Fair

I have a table at the Wheeler Holiday Art Fair. I will be selling ornaments, hand-painted wrapping paper and some small wax paintings. I am so full of Christmas cheer it is ridiculous. This is the only time of year I listen to Mariah Carey.
