Speaking of encaustic, I keep forgetting to check this blog by encaustic artist Joanne Mattera who literally wrote the book on the technique. If you’re into abstraction, she collects and reviews some really inspiring shows that set your mind going.
This pic from Joanne’s blog shows the Enkaustikos product we’ll be using to demonstrate being, well, demonstrated at the First National Conference of Encaustic Painting in 2007. Those little tins on the electric pancake griddle are almost all you need to get started!
