The ice was still on the lake when we arrived last week. It took 5 days for the ice to disappear so we had no water in the cottage during that week. After a day of getting the water to work we now have water and I am back working in the studio after cleaning and getting it ready for my art making adventures. I took all of my encaustic media back with me and have been setting up a work area. It is difficult because I have my sewing machines for stitching fabrics, my acrylic painting area where I paint on canvas, and now my encaustic equipment. So, my new studio which I built last year is getting smaller and smaller. I wish I was a dedicated painter and not a mixed-media artist because life would be so much simpler.
I will be working over the next few weeks and will be posting my processes and final artworks.
