I don’t know how to reblog a Facebook page, but I wanted to share images of new work by Oregon artist Laura Ross Paul. Here’s what she says on her FB page: “The technique is oil and wax over watercolors, all done on the new Arches Hulle paper, which has sizing embedded.”
Laura’s work demonstrates a balance between beauty, wonder and technical genius. When I see her paintings in person, I almost never notice the material at all–just the work. In fact, I just learned recently that she uses wax. That’s how bowled over I get about her paintings!
Encaustic Materials Handbook update
The free promo week is over, guys. Now the price rockets to $7.99. I surely don’t want to stop folks from paying real money for my book–the royalty is equivalent to a mocha latte, which is heaven in this lovely summer weather. But there may be other promo weeks coming up. Amazon lets me do that occasionally. Sign up for email updates on the right and I’ll let you know.
But if you want me to have a mocha latte, go ahead and buy my book! Oh, almost forgot, anyone who hasn’t reviewed the book but still intends to (except for John who threatened to leave only two stars because his ancient, prehistoric Kindle doesn’t have color, and that’s somehow my fault) can still score a free review copy. Just let me know.
