Perfect timing for a spot of Xmas shopping....
I'll be exhibiting 6 pictures created using encaustic wax. At our gazebo at Art in the Gardens in September so many people enjoyed being able to touch the wax as well as look at the images.They have a surprising strength, whilst looking so fragile. I'm not sure if the organisers of the GSAS will encourage touching pictures: just tell them it's OK by me ;-)

There was a lot of stellar activity from NASA in 2016. The Rosetta Mission and Philae came top of my list. Perhaps to lose sight for a day or two of what we are doing on earth, it's good to reach out to the stars.With coloured wax you can experiment with the look and feel of an entire new universe. Then return to Earth refreshed to get on with making some other rewarding creation: like dinner...

It was during the Russian excursion/incursion into the Crimea in 2015 that this warrior appeared and asked to be armoured with something arrow-proof. I was glad to oblige with gold leaf on a smooth raised surface of wax.

I'm looking forward to finding many ways to exploit wax in the future, and hope you will follow my journey, either online, coming to the show, or by contacting me.
