It was the orange cream biscuit that did it. That burst of sugar at the tired part of Day 2 of the Encaustic Painting workshop at BRAG which brought forth the New Mexican Cactus Monster. Laser transfer, wax, oil paint, japanese paper eyes, sugar high (not mandatory).
Patricia Baldwin Seggebruch, the current Artist in Residence at BRAG, ran an amazing
2 day Encaustic Painting workshop. A medium I knew nothing about other than loving it’s depth and textural possibilities. Patricia’s work is delicious, organic, abstract… you can tell I loved it.
We had a great day and how lovely to work alongside one of the WBHD ‘organisers’ who pumped out a series of waxy collages that were sublime in a ‘that lady has been hiding her light under a bushel’ kind of way. Had I eaten a third orange cream I probably would have started quietly stealing her works. Please ‘lady organiser’, post us a couple of pics. No pressure 🙂
Christine dropped up to see the work at the end of Day 2 and we all agreed it would be fun to build this into our Sunday print group. Collaged prints and drawings in amongst the wax. Mmmmmm. I believe Jenny and Susan are booked into the Childers workshop. I hope you can post works from that one too.
An experimental time with mixed results.
