The start of a New Year - 2011

Fifteen days into it. I have been busy! My encaustic studio was disassembled in December 2010 to become a bedroom for my daughter, son-in-law, and grandson. So before reassembling, the studio got a fresh coat of white paint, ceiling, walls, et. al...Now re-organized and fresh, I'm back in the studio! There will be posts of new work in the very near future.

This is sort of a "grab bag" post in the meantime.

Anyway, starting the new year with "new" studio, taking a writing class, continuing Sunday drawing lab with good friends. And making more art....good start for 2011!

Here's a share I like:

Talked with my sister Holli yesterday. She lives in Nashville. She's a writer and has new book coming out in July, so more on that this summer! Her hubby, my brother-in-law, is a musician - Stone Jack Jones.

Catch this excellent video made end of last year of Stone Jack Jones:

It was directed by Zack Spiger and photographed by Spiger and Madison Rowley, with editorial by Sacha Szwarc and film scanning and grading by Eric Rosen at Lightpress -

Beautifully filmed!

Here's to a creative, fresh, new year!


  1. Sounds like a great way to start the new year - with a freshly painted and re-assembled studio!

    Look forward to seeing your new work in '11 :).

  2. Yes, it feels good to start fresh!

    Look forward to seeing your new work too:-)
