Autumn is in the Air!

The beautiful Canadian autumn colours are the inspiration behind these new mixed media art cards available at the Viva Vida Art Gallery in Montreal.

Encaustic Class with Susan Ukkola

I really enjoyed taking an encaustic workshop with Susan Ukkola in Ottawa. The tree piece incorporates a photo transfer. For the leaf piece I made the abstract background during the workshop then completed the piece back home. I made the wire leaf with copper wire and traced the shape onto the background. I added more burnt sienna
wax as a backdrop for the leaf then drilled holes into the wood and secured the wire leaf. My embossing heat gun fused the work into a cohesive piece!
