From the Shenandoah Mountains to Cape Cod

I spent the July Fourth weekend in the beautiful Shenandoah Mountains again this year. Our friend has a house there and it’s one of my favorite places to spend time.

There’s an old farmhouse on the property and it’s so much fun to photograph. I feel like I can never do it justice.

In other news, I’m finally back in the studio working on some encaustic painting. The Fifth International Encaustic Conference I attended the first weekend in June In Provincetown, Massachusetts, recharged my waxy batteries and gave me lots of cool ideas to think about.

I enjoyed the talks I attended at the conference, too. “Taking The Leap” by Jhina Alvarado was all about selling yourself as an artist and getting work into galleries. Tania Wycherley gave a presentation on Advanced Image Transfer that was terrific. She demonstrated how she divides images up in Photoshop so she can transfer larger images to a prepared encaustic surface.

I left Cape Cod champing  at the bit to try out some of the techniques I saw. The Old Farmhouse photograph is one of the images I’m going to use in an image transfer.

So, back to work I go.
