Waxy studio weekend...

I have been in such a good mood thanks to my totally amazing waxy weekend!
After spending two art filled days with these lovely ladies it was hard to go back to reality.
Everyone got along so well and we all genuinely enjoyed each others company.
Judy is so kind and made us all feel so welcome in her home. We didn't want to leave.
Pictured top row from left to right: Barbara, Melinda, and me.
Bottom row left to right: Judy and Ruth.
Melinda and I were too giggly here to get a clear shot. :)
Judy taught us to paint a portrait made entirely of wax. Mine is pictured below.

This one is Ruth's(my table buddy)
She is a really talented artist and super fun too!
This one is Barbara's. We all decided to name her
Cindy. I love her.
This last one was done by Melinda, I think we all
did amazing especially considering it was something
we've never done before.
This a collage made by Ruth, sorry it's sideways.
It turned out beautiful.
Some waxy collages by Melinda.
I made this little collage. I was thinking of my husband when I
picked out the words. ♥
Imagine spending two wonderful days surrounded by Judy's
amazing paintings and her adorable little sculpey dolls.
The next few pics are all Judy's art.

Here's Judy nudging and encouraging us.

Ruth my table buddy working on a collage.
Me working on my portrait. I was cold working so close to the door
so Judy kindly covered my shoulders with a really soft jacket.
She totally took care of us. I just love her.

Happy Happy to have new art friends!

Judy and I.
