Windy Wednesday

I am still working on the new series.

"Warm Air Rises." Oil on canvas, 36 x 36 inches. 

I think this one may be my favorite so far. What do you think?

Wind is a pretty common visitor in spring. It has finally decided to visit us here in the desert. It's been here since Friday in varying degrees. It did bring a tiny bit of rain, along with cooler temperatures.

One has to hike up higher to see flowers now, but there are still some patches, for the more ambitious wildflower seeker. The following photos are from a week or so ago.

I am currently taking a class in encaustics from Stephanie Hargrave through Carla Sonheim. I have never done encaustic painting before, and so far I am loving it! Encaustic painting is painting with pigmented wax, and it is probably the oldest and most durable kind of painting. You can read more about it here.

I hope you are all having a magnificent week! Thanks for stopping by, and thanks for your comments and emails!

My favourite too! Even in the thumbnail pic in my sidebar I could see it would be my favourite.

I love your new series of paintings. They are amazing! They look so much like watercolor. They have such a light quality about them. Keep it up!
