Fall is in the air, and in new artworks. Here's a sneak peek from my mobile of one getting painted & waxed tomorrow.

Fall is in the air and also in many new works, along with angels, owls, the Northern Pacific, foggy seascapes & landscapes to cozy up to. Stay tuned for pictures of the newest batch of collages this week and a special post about the Encaustic process with action shots. . .

* A Link to make you Think, think, think . . . about water consumption *

Working on completion of some new oil paintings this week. Will post some pics of works soon with completed oils, pre-wax. the waxing process and post-wax.

In the meantime here's a link posted about water consumption, something to ponder and consider:
Instead of beef or chicken, how about a salad for lunch?

Look forward to posting new work soon ~ bye for now, Susan
