cleaning the studio...

...and other adventures in art

The Cultural Council of Santa Cruz County made a short video promoting the upcoming Open Studios and asked me to do an encaustic demo for the video.  That’s me in the awful blue-green plaid shirt. (Hey!  It’s studio clothing!)

My daughter pointed out that everyone else in the video is delicately and precisely doing their work, but I’m just grabbing for the wax with one hand while I’m inattentively using the heat gun with the other.

In spite of that, that piece I’m working on is now almost finished and looks great.
