Mary Farmer taught two encaustic workshops, and both classes were filled! It was a fun three days to make lots of paintings and learn many techniques of the medium. Mary will be back Oct 30th for an Advanced Demo. I hope everyone can make it back for the class, more to learn! Here are the participants in the August class with Mary (Top row right). Peanut had a good time too!
It was hot everywhere, but we still got out to paint at the park, and here is a view of the French Broad River. This park is just a few minutes from the studio and has everything visible to make a beautiful painting: Sky, clouds, trees, river, people, dogs, benches, cool breezes, striking shadows and the pleasure of being outside.
We will be returning to the park this fall. The colors will be beautiful as ever, and the cooler fall weather is welcomed!
