i love texture

after encaustic class on sunday i got excited to be creating texture again

i played around with the photographs in ps and created a some

overlays to use on other photos

it took a lot of playing around and trying out different photos
before i came up with something i really liked

encaustic class

it's been five months since my last class

it felt really good to get back into the swing of things

i was inspired by patrica baldwin seggebruch

for today's class i covered the canvases with book pages

and used a lot of wax glazes

after a lot of scraping and incising

i added oil paint to highlite the texture

the next class is a month away

i may have to set up my studio again

sorry about the last post, i tried to link my instagram to my blog and somehow it got lost??

so i'm trying it another way

i got my i phone march of 2010, i love it but i always forget about the camera option

i always carry my little camera in my purse, so i'm used to using it

at the beginning of the year a friend told me about instagram

a free app for iphones that lets you share your photos with other iphone photographers

so i signed up, my user name cherry 2000,(it's a movie reference),

you can find and follow others from all over the world and post comments

now, i just have to leave my little camera at home and use my iphone more often!!

if you are a member look me up and if not check it out, you'll love it

the first sign of fall

as i wondered home through the back roads

i was looking for signs of fall

the leaves haven't changed yet but you can tell it will be soon

one thing i did notice was this pond, usually empty

was buzzing with visitors

it won't be long now when the geese start there long

flight south

at the other end
these beautiful swans

lots of outdoor vendors
where i always find the best deals and more "junk"
than antiques
