Faux Encaustic Play

Hello Friends,

Since the beginning of 2017 I have been teaching art to a home-school student, the daughter of a friend. Our last lesson was all about technique, which is important, but I believe it is just as important to simply play with art as well. I have seen some very good artists lose the joy of creating because they are so focused on technique and results that they forget to toss out the rules sometimes and just play. I want to instill in my student the importance of both.

So today I got out my crayons, pancake griddle, heat gun and other encaustic tools and encouraged her to play. There was some technique involved, such as fusing the layers and how to clean the brushes, but basically I gave her free reign. It was fun to watch her smile the whole time she created and then she turned out this beautiful abstract painting as a result. I love the bloom she achieved in the bottom right corner with a bit of white and the heat gun.

Thanks for popping by. I hope you take time to play in some way today.

Blessing hugs,
Teresa

Ricky's Promotion

Hello Friends,

Ricky (my Lionhead/mini-rex bunny) has been doing so well with his litter box training, I decided to see how he would do in a bigger space. He passed with flying colours, so I went ahead and opened up his training cage to the rest of my aviary room. I added an extra litter box and bed. Now he has the run of the whole room, plus his loft cage area. He has been having a blast running up and down, and around. Here is a little video of him, just minutes after his promotion to a big-bunny living space.

Thanks for stopping by and indulging my showing off my darling little rabbit.

hugs,
Teresa
