Tired. Exhilerated. Playful. My day started with writing Morning Pages and addressing my inner critic. I realized I can't completely shut the bugger out, so I invited my critic to sit on my shoulder during the day and offer helpful hints. Not sure how successful that whole plan turned out, but I did start my day feeling lighter for having written about my fears. As I left the boat and headed to the second day of my class at the Oregon College of Art and Craft, I dug my camera out of my purse and snapped a few photos just to get some creativity pumping through my veins (along with the caffeine).
It was a fun surprise to run into Linda Womack in the class. Linda is the queen of encaustic and has written a successful book on the topic, Embracing Encaustic. Check out Linda's website, blog, and her book! Here's Linda working on one of her class projects.
