Cooper got a Jumperoo-- these didn't exist when the girls were babies. So cool! And he loves it. He bounces like a little crazy person.
I went to an encaustics workshop yesterday. I've been going to Sheary's studio for over 2 years now. Even though I have the supplies to do it at home, I need a ventilation system in place. It looks like we'll be doing that in the garage this summer. I did three pieces, none of which are finished paintings to me.
The first one is pretty bright, which seems to be typical of my paintings. I tried to tone it down. Didn't work.
I'm doing a First Friday show with the Alaskan IEA group in May, so I'm working on a 12x12 piece for that. The one above is also a work in progress. It's definitely missing something. This one below is in it's very beginning stages. I'm thinking it looks like the start of another abstract landscape, but I just don't know. I've got a couple of weeks to play around with it.
Otherwise the weekend was filled with birthday parties for each of the girls, and a lot of great family time. Just the way I like it.
