Happy New Year!  (just a couple weeks late – not too bad considering my blogging track record)

Christmas is over and so is the club volleyball season. I would do a “no more volleyball” happy dance, but conditioning for the high school season starts next week. So yeah… the volleyball, unlike the holiday season, never ends. It just changes uniforms.

Hey, here is some great news for the new year – Chris has finished his last class and is getting his Masters Degree in Financial Services!! More alphabet soup to add to his business cards. CFP and MSFS – so proud of him!

I’m still working on my 20+ year AA plan. One of these days I’ll take that damn Speech class. Really! But this semester I’m sticking with Printmaking. Class starts on the 28th. Can’t wait.

In the meantime, thanks to Santa, I have the supplies to work in encaustic (painting with pigmented wax) at home and am trying to find my groove with this new medium.

Finished a piece I did at the Wax Works West class last Nov:

And the new pieces I created:

Encaustic on 6"x6" cradled wood panel

"She Called Down the Moon" Encaustic on 9"x12" cradled wood panel

"Generic" Encaustic on 12"x12" Encausicbord

I also did a small mixed-media painting and have another panel started.

"Bull" Mixed-media on 9"x12" cradled wood panel

So yeah, I would say 2014 is off to a good start!
