Holy shiznicks, I've just been christened into the world of encaustic by Cheryl McGannon in one of her 2 day workshops. She is a master of the medium and had me at the words "blow torch and melted beeswax"!!! I've a long way to go to experiment with this technique and how to incorporate into my work, but am so grateful to have been introduced to it. Cheryl teaches workshops at her oasis of a studio in Doonan and is a highly sought after QLD artist. She is a flamin legend!!! Book yourself in!
Marg Watt - FANTASTIC workshops if you are contemplating. Just do yourself a favour and learn from Cheryl
Cold wax mixed media on panel, this painting is my response to the current war in the Ukraine. My initial reaction to the aggressive invasion of the Ukraine by Russia.
The inhumanity of war by aggressive greedy nations, does nothing but desecrate people's lives, the environment and is a crime against humanity. My heart weeps for the people of Ukraine.
