Open Studios 2016

Silicon Valley Open Studios 2016 Artists Last weekend I participated in Silicon Valley Open Studios with a group of 12 other fantastic artists. It was a wonderful weekend despite the light showers Saturday morning and afternoon. Thankfully the rain didn't keep people from coming out and enjoying the art. It was also a great weekend because 11 of my pieces found new happy homes.

I love doing these types of events because I get to meet so many new people and share my art with them. The encaustic process can be new to a lot of people so I was happy to explain it and show them samples of all of my supplies. Its such a magical process mixing the bees wax, resin and pigments and then fusing everything with fire.

I want to thank everyone who came out and visited me. Your support and encouragement mean so much.
