Come see what I've been working on!

TGIF Everybody!  
I'm letting too much time pass in between posts, sorry about that.  I'm popping in to show you what I've been working on lately.  
The first few pics are the progression of a little 5x5 painting I recently finished.  She started out looking like an  alien.  I didn't mean for her to end up with a veil.  She started out with hair but my daughter didn't like it and I really didn't either.  As I was covering over the hair with gesso it started to look like a veil so I went with it.  
I love how she turned out!  I added some yellow crackle to finish the piece.  She'll be going to my etsy shop soon!

Played with encaustic today for my online wax class, LOVE IT!!!

Still refining this piece  I shared in my last post.

I'm loving the online class I'm taking right now taught by my friend Judy Wise.  
You can find out more about it
I'm dreaming of one day have my very own studio where I can create all the day long!

Wishing you a Happy Weekend!
