I decided to throw myself into a daily challenge of making which was started by Elle Luna over at The Great Discontent. She calls it "The 100DayProject". Here's how she describes it on her blog:
"It’s a celebration of process that encourages everyone to participate in 100 days of making. The great surrender is the process; showing up day after day is the goal. For the, it’s not about fetishizing finished products—it’s about the process."
Here's a look at my Day 1.
It's an 6x6 encaustic* piece I call "Butterscotch on Top"
* encaustic - also known as hot wax painting, involves using heated beeswax to which colored pigments are added
|Encaustic medium, stamped images on deli paper, oil paint (Titanium White, Burnt Umber and Yellow Ochre)|
|So yummy, reminds me of peanut brittle!|
|Love how the burnt umber appears inside the holes.|
It started on April 6th so this being the ninth I have a little catching up to do. It's never too late so come on and join in on the fun!
