Encaustics Show in Santa Cruz

An online acquaintance of mine, Sandy Sudbrink, of Santa Cruz, kindly went to the Pajaro Valley Arts Council to see a show in which I have three pieces.  AND SHE TOOK A PHOTO OF MY WORK!!!  How cool is that!  Take a look at Sandy's website of beautiful watercolors.  I particularly like the architectural piece - they have a stillness to them that I find really intriguing.

Here are my pieces in the show, called "WAX: Contemporary Encaustic Works":

If anyone wants to know anything more about encaustics, go here.  If you want to take an encaustics workshop with me, I'm teaching one at Art Unraveled, on Monday, August 6; and again at Art and Soul on Tuesday, October 2.  I'm offering a workshop called Paper and Wax at the Guilford Art Center in Guilford, CT the weekend of October 13 - 14. 

Thanks for visiting!

  1. congratulations on your showing Jane! They're fantastic pieces. I would love to try encaustics--they're next on my list. If you ever do any workshops on the west coast of Canada just let me know ;-) until then I'll check out your link...

  2. And you've just started working with encaustics? These are all fantastic. I was trying to choose one I liked better than the others, but can't do it. All the colors are so rich and luminous, and they have a depth of their own. Beautiful.

  3. love love these encaustics Jane. So vibrant, and exciting. Any chance you might teach a workshop in Mass?
    I have been wanting to try this art form. Just have my fingers into too many pies right now. :)

  4. Lovely work! Congratulations on your show. Although our work is very different, we have a common interest in wax processes. I see that we will also be teaching together in a couple of locations: Art Unraveled and Create Chicago. I look forward to meeting you there. If you are interested in a great encastic experience, come to San Antonio next September.... www.encausticon.com If you can't come for some reason, please do enter your work in our show! Best, Michelle Belto
