I will do my best to fit in an extra surprise Wednesday in here, in the next couple of weeks.
Truth told, I am back from a much needed brake for our annual trip to Disney .

I am a strong believer of a positive domino effect. Where one act of kindness can blossom into hundreds , or even thousands if continually paid forward. And , I have seen , heard, and experienced many of these acts originating from the people employed there.
Jack , an awesome Disney cast member, drew this for Reagan on a napkin ,while he was waiting to
for our chicken sandwiches to be ready at a quick serve restaurant in Hollywood Studios.
Generating a positive spirit is a whole other blog post however!

The thing that draws my artist eye back year after year is this. Behind Everything at Disney down to the tiniest detail, from the buildings, decor, rides , themes, hotels, etc is is a mass conglomerate of artists from every aspect imaginable.

Yes it is commercial.
But, I approach it as behind each and every experience, and detail, there are a multitude of creative spirits that poured their soul into making this real.

As a result I like to look for, and appreciate, all of the creative energy that has been produced by people both living and past ,that went into everything there , and not the commercialness of it.
And my own spirit is refreshed
Wax on Wednesday #3
Wax on Wednesday #3
I used heavy 140lb paper because it was handy , but card stock, chip board , etc, can all easily be used for this. If you want a cleaner edge to your finished image ,clean it up with a slightly warmed up blade or exacto knife etc. heated on your warming tray.
For this week I prepped board with encaustic gesso, and then used encaustic medium , oil colors white , and black, and water soluble graphite on
cradle board . Thats it!
The lovely vintage striation marks are from the graphite moving on the wax. That was probably my favorite part about this piece.
