The current show at the San Diego Art Institute in Balboa Park is very good, featuring two friends of mine who are outstanding artists, Judy Parenio and Betty Hock. I had an encaustic piece accepted too. The title was "Alegre" and I just heard today that it sold this past weekend. That makes me happy for sure. Selling our work is not the main reason artists make art, but it sure is a motivator! Another larger piece sold from my studio last week. I just mailed off a submission to a juried encaustic show—a process that took weeks, re-photographing the art, resizing images according to specifications, re-writing my artist statement and resume. I was happy to finally get it to the post office.
I may be teaching an Advanced Encaustic workshop at my studio December 5th, 2009 from
10-3 pm. If you are interested please let me know as the class size will be limited.
