October is a big month for me every year, but this one has been busier than usual. First I attended the annual  International Encaustic Artists Retreat in Carmel and now I’m in the middle of Portland Open Studios.

The Retreat

For some reason I thought the retreat would be relaxing, but no so much. Thankfully what kept me so busy was meeting new friends, selling books, and opening my mind to new ideas and experiences. It was such a rush to be at “encaustic camp” with 65 other artists, all passionate about our medium. Our wonderful organizer, Cari Hernandez, has some wonderful photos on her FaceBook page.

I’m trying something new this year: a silent auction of some of my older work starting at very reasonable prices. There will be at least 8 pieces up for auction ranging from smaller works up to 30″ x 30″! I’m trying to work out a way for those of you who are out of town to have a chance to bid as well.
