Featured Artist: Sandra

Featured member this week is Sandra. She has a fun image of herself as her profile picture, showing off a piece of artwork, while standing dangerously close to a pond….Sandra, you have to tell us more about that!

You can view Sandra’s Encaustic pieces here. She uploaded some delightful children’s portraits, but the one that really struck me was BFA as Therapy. I encourage you to read the comments exchange Sandra and I had on there. Sandra is an Occupational Therapist who uses art therapy and Encaustic as a way of healing.
She will also soon have my Encaustic supplies for sale, so if you live in Saskatchewan, be sure to get in touch with her if you need anything.

I’ll take this opportunity to let you know that I will be teaching a workshop in Richmond, April 25 and that there is some more info on Linda Womack’s courses, which run in Okanagan Falls in September.

Tomorrow the exhibition “A Little Bit of Everything” will open at Leir House, Penticton at 7 PM. Please come out and join us. Almost half of the submitted work is in Encaustic!
Next week, Thursday March 18, “Spring Renewal”, a juried FCA show, opens at the Summerland Art Gallery. Encaustic is represented there by two of my pieces and one by my good friend Carol Munro. Opening again 7 PM.
Encaustic is taking over the art world!!

Happy painting, talk to you next week,
Thea
