An Art Show to Bloom About!

Blooming Day, 6" x 6" encaustic

I'm gearing up for my next art show at Rising Bird Healing Arts, my home business here in Seattle. My encaustic day on Friday sure spurred some spring-themed pieces (like the one above) and I look forward to sharing my other new pieces at my show on Friday!

It is here in her home where she creates her mixed media collages and encaustic art.
