I just completed a four day Daniella Woolf workshop at Coupeville on Whidbey Island. What a treat it was to meet her and have the opportunity to learn from her. I haven't actually had any formal encaustic training except for a class I took 8 years ago with Trish Seggebruch. I have mostly been teaching myself from books. It was Daniella's book that caused me to sign up for the workshop. I had been trying to get signed up for a workshop with her at her studio, Wax Works West, in Santa Cruz, but found out she had retired from the group, and this Coupeville class was the only class she was teaching in the U.S. in 2014. So, I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity. I had an awesome time with a great group of artists, including my friends Tracy Fraker and Lisa JonesMoore. I am posting a few of the paintings I created while in the workshop. They are mostly partial images as I have not had the pieces photographed for my website yet. These are just pictures I took in the class.
The piece above started out as a book.
