Experimenting is so good. No expectations about outcomes. Just playing with materials to see what they’ll do. It also helps pass the time. My super fun niece and nephew are flying in from Altlanta. I can’t wait to go get them tonight!This started as a quickie encaustic monoprint when I was cleaning out the studio the other day. Followed by a layer of gold leaf from LA Gold Leaf and a smear of Daniel Smith transparent watercolor ground here and there. Then some more watercolors on top. That was a surprise! It reminded me of when we mixed crayons and watercolor in kindergarten. I had forgotten how much I love to see the water bead up on the wax. Tonight was doodling with a Uni-Ball Signo pen. I had no idea if the pen would work but it seemed to lay down nicely over the ground. …#exploreart #experimentalart #encausticmonoprint #encaustic #mixedmediaonpaper #goldleaf #abstractartwork #lagoldleaf #danielsmith #uniballsigno #uniballsignowhite #flypdx #gillianwelch #thebegoodtanyas #musictomakeartby
