Wax On!

A couple years ago Cloth, Paper, Scissors hosted a Create Retreat in Costa Mesa, CA. Many well known artists were teaching workshops there. One of those was Patricia Baldwin Seggebruch, a well-known encaustic artist. Patricia was quite knowledgeable and inspiring. 5 hours after the class started, Brian & I had created 8 pieces each! The piece shown here is one of those I created that day. We have been playing with encaustics ever since.


Recently my dear friend Sandy Wildermuth asked if I would be willing to teach an encaustic workshop to which I replied an enthusiastic YES! However as the date approached I got more and more nervous. What if I don’t know what to say? Will everyone feel they got their money’s worth? Well, the day did come and I have to say I think we all had a great time! I’m not sure how much I actually “taught” them but I do think I was an enabler for their creative spirits to come out and play. Each person created 6-8 pieces each. Below are pictures of just some of their lovely works.


















And here are my 3 beautiful students. John, Ann-Marie, and Sandy: Thank you all for choosing to invest your time on a Sunday to participate in this workshop. You made my first teaching experience a joyful memory that I will cherish always. You are awesome!
