Encaustic explorations

Encaustic explorations

The magic of wax... Transluscent... sensual... textured... natural... luminous... raw... layered... dimensional... luscious... soft... warm...

I am still completely smitten. Wax feels so natural, so "home" really... So today is a time to honor this new, wonderful and unexpected turn in my creative journey, these small yet magical beginnings.

I've been so amazed by the response I got after posting my first encaustic explorations last month. And to think that it all started with a crockpot and a humble tin can...

I'm about to upgrade my studio setup a bit (with the addition of a griddle and some muffin tins...) but before I embark upon this new phase of my wax experiments, I really wish to share the joy that it has been so far. Which is why I decided to upgrade my computer skills too, and put together a little video. I'm hoping to create some tutorials in the future and this is a first step... Enjoy!

I have 11 pieces finished by now, and all have already found their new home, which feels totally awesome. I know in my heart of hearts that each original piece I create is meant for a very special person somewhere on the planet, and it fills me with joy every time such a beautiful encounter happens. I make art because it lights me up, and then it is meant to fly away into the world and bring this light to other souls.

By the way, my original art now has it's own dedicated page HERE on the blog (I'm hoping to add an encaustic category to it soon!). And for more inspiration, check out my wax board on Pinterest.

Also, a little reminder to all you amazing creatives out there: I have started this work as part of Kellee Conrad’s 100 artworks challenge and it's still time to join! It's free, self-paced and there's an amazing, supportive community of creative souls. It's the perfect opportunity to explore a new medium, theme, format, to create a new body of work or simply to make art a daily practice.

Thanks everyone for your continued support on this journey of discovery ♡

Light & love
