Here’s a link to a show juried by Shawn Hill, critic, Art New England for the Seventh International Encaustic Conference. Have to admit I’m a little confused because I thought it was the fifth international conference this year. How time flies when you are a famous encaustic artist like these folks. The exhibition theme is “seven.” And gosh, wouldn’t that make a fine theme for a high school prom?
Here is an artist from the show I especially like, Leslie Ford:
Go to Leslie Ford’s site and see more beautiful paintings.
Despite the snotty remark (above) about a high school prom with the theme of seven–which brings to mind the dark David Fincher flick called Se7en and surely not a suitable theme for any kind of public event (oh I’m doing it again), this show looks amazing!
Why am I so touchy today? Because I am THIS close to having the infernal book done–Seven Ways to Feel Pain with Encaustic Materials. I’m sorry, I mean The Encaustic Materials Handbook. I’ll be breaking a bottle of champagne over my head sometime this week.
