A Wabi-Sabi Afternoon

Sarah's First Cold Wax Painting

 Three members of my women's art group met this afternoon at my studio. Kelly worked in encaustic, Cindy in acrylic, (see my other blog for their work) and Sara and I did wabi-sabi abstracts in oil and cold wax.

Sara did a lot of incising and scraping back in this piece

Sarah's abstract landscape. When she got to this point,we all yelled "stop!"

I did the oil and cold wax pieces below. I surprised myself by using pink in the second one shown here. I think it's good for me to experiment with a cooler palette sometimes. (Hide the transparent red oxide, someone:)

I'm definitely using more bright red these days

The group told me to stop here, so I did!
