Joy of creating – Weekly Photo Challenge

DSCN3983 (600x559)

What a joyful feeling to be creating art!  This is a photo of an encaustic painting I made at an art workshop this past Sunday – my first art class in 32 years!  It is a painting in wax with a couple of elements imbedded in the wax.  Creating this got me thinking, “what is a ‘work of art’?”  What is it that happens in adult hood that most of us stop making art when it can be so much fun?

This painting was inspired by this photo I took this fall.  See the birch tree?  Here's to more art and joy in 2014!

    • Indeed I would imagine there are few birch trees in most of Australia since they are adapted to cold. Historically they have thrived here in NH (just south of Canada) but there is speculation they will become stressed in the southern end of the state and disappear as the climate warms.
