Encaustic Wax Painting

My local art group - Spalding Art & Craft Society - has monthly demonstrations. This month it was Carole Boyer showing us how to create encaustic wax paintings with a hot iron. The second half of the demo was a 'try' session and I must admit I was hooked. These are my first attempts, all done in about 30 mins. The small ones are A6, the larger is A5.

I'll definitely be giving it a go at home once I've ordered the equipment - iron, pigmented beeswax and glossy paper.

Wisley Sweet Pea Day - update

Many thanks to all of you who turned up to meet us - nothing worse than a show where there are no visitors.

Our stand at the show

To our surprise the National Sweet Pea Society awarded us a Gold for our efforts.

Wisley Sweet Pea Day

The National Sweet Pea Society are having their annual open day at the RHS Wisley gardens in Surrey on the 13th June. 

Why not visit the show and the trial grounds. I'll be there with a display of my notelets, cards, prints & painting - all Sweet Peas of course. 

My husband, Mark Rowland of Owl's Acre Sweet Peas, will be there as well.

Spalding Art & Crafts Society Annual Exhibition

As a member of the society I've got a few paintings in the exhibition - the standard this year from all exhibitors is very good - well worth a visit.
Due to local council cuts the hall and exhibition aren't open on Mondays & Tuesdays but are open the rest of the week and on the Bank Holiday Monday.

Happy New Year

Wishing you all a Happy New Year

Helleborus Niger 'Christmas Rose'

Hope everyone had as good a Christmas as we did and are looking forward to the New Year.
I'm hoping that this will be the year that I get 'kick started' again with my painting.
