Up & Coming

several items of interest you might want to take a look at. the first is Laura Moriarty's painting (?) process video at the R & F website or you tube and a different type of artist is portrayed in Man on Wire, an Oscar award winner for best documentary on Phillipe Petit the tightrope walker who walked across a steel cable between the World Trade Towers not just once but for 45 minutes! his story is quite amazing. there is another interesting story about the African artist El Anatsui in the New York Times who creates beautiful hanging paintings out of bottle caps. you might have seen one of his pieces at MAD.
i will be having a weekend encaustic workshop at Silvermine Guild Arts Center on March 13 & 14 for those who have basic encaustic skills. details on the Silvermine website. There will be more workshops offered this summer and i am also available for private workshops in my studio.
