Summer of Color - Strawberry Lemonade Punch!





I can't believe it's already week 4 of Kristin's Summer of Color - for that matter I can't believe it's already July -  after tomorrow I'm on vacation for 5 days - yeah!  No access to internet so I'll  be behind on checking out everyones art for this week's challenge, but I'll catch up eventually. 

This week's challenge ice cream flavor is Strawberry Lemonade Punch - mmmm, I'm thinking it's probably sweet and tart... I'm trying not to eat sugar, but I can imagine!





This week's is another piece on wood, done on a page from my 1917 prescription book. This is a phase I'm in right now - the paper is so old but it's thick and the ink doesn't run at all - I'm just in love with it.





There are several layers of wax on top - something else I'm in love with!

  2. Wow, what a fantastic face with an intense stare. This works so well on the old paper. Can I ask what paint you've used? Is it acrylic? The rusty leaves are wonderful!

    STUNNING artwork, Terri.

  17. right away I said, this is encaustic. I love it!!! Funny enough, I was so excited about having yellow in the color scheme this week so I could use beeswax! ok, so I have not done the piece yet, but I can't wait to heat up that pot of wax!
