My senior students graduated a month ago and it feels like I am now just starting to hit my summer stride. I have set a “new” routine that (although still involves school work, curriculum writing and planning) contains more time for my own creative juices to flow. I am working on a series of encaustic paintings that incorporate wax into my interests of collage, layered printed imagery, dress patterns, venetian plaster and mark making. I love teaching art – but I love making it as well. I’m so glad to have summer time to do and renew! What a good feeling.
Here are a few of the developments. Just the beginnings.
