It was another whirlwind of an encaustic conference so I thought I’d capture it best with a video this year. Here are the 3 days of the conference in about 3 minutes:
My husband, Bill, was sick during a good part of the trip, but we still managed to get out and have a little fun. Here are a few photos of our outside activities.
Before the conference we got a few days to relax at an old farm house, complete with wild birds instead of an alarm clock.
We also found this lovely "Bridge of Flowers" where the residents of Shelburne Falls planted this old bridge with a garden, trees and all, instead of tearing it down.
During the conference we made our way to Woodman's (in Essex) for fried clams and "lobstah." Kimberly Kent and Bridget Benton also enjoyed the onion rings (and perhaps a few drinks?).
We finally got a chance to meet Steve at Van Gogh's Gear (in Lowell, Mass.) who carries my book, Embracing Encaustic. Nice guy, great art store!
The weather wasn't very good this year but we still got one sunny day before we left to explore Patch Beach in Beverly.
Enjoying a moment of sun before returning to the rainy, cold weather of Portland.
