Dreaming Big

This is an encaustic piece I did when I first got my kit a while back. It's 6" x 12" on plywood. Nothing special but I keep it in my studio to remind me to dream...dream big. Kelly Rae's course is reminding me to stay focused on my dreams and not to get off track. That's something that I easily do: lose focus.

I saw this YouTube video in an encaustic group I belong to. It's an older video but I never get tired of watching this encaustic artist work. And she works BIG. Talk about dreaming big... I want to be her when I grow up!

While we're dreaming big, I always thought it would be great to have a warehouse-type studio. One with lots of windows and a workspace where you could spread out all of your tools and equipment...really let loose.

She is an awesome artist and inspiration to watch. Enjoy!

what an amazing video
I imagine that's oil paint she's rubbing into the incisions? I've never gotten that to work but I think I need to thin them down a lot
sooooooooo cool
I hope you'll have your studio soon where you can safely use the encaustics AND stay cool

An amazing video- it helps me understand the process that you do alot more. Your early piece is beautiful -I really like the color and movement of your work. The color has highs and lows with depth to it- perhaps that is the nature of encaustic. Lovely informative post Pam!
