Well, I haven't really been having any adventures to speak of, but I made a piece with that as it's theme, which I figure is better than nothing.  This piece started out as the cardboard from this year's calendar.  I felt compelled to start collaging old text pages and maps on it and started having fun.

Lot of different elements and covered with layers of encaustic wax. This piece encompasses many of my favorite things to do - I just indulged myself.

I love this image of the ship I tore out of a very old and cover-less copy of Robinson Crusoe.

The rest are pages from my fabric journal, trying to get closer to finishing it (since I made a second one which is still languishing untouched without even a cover).

I had a birds with crowns day...

Claymore looking guilty, as he often does.

 It's not even March and Spring is here, it's crazy.  But it's giving me Spring fever and all of a sudden I want to be working outside and going for bike rides.  But I signed up for an online class with Gillian Lee, so hopefully that'll keep me motivated to spend time in my studio as well.


  1. Hi Terri

    How lovely to see a post from you and with lots of photos too :)

    Of course I love them all .... you've made me want to play with my wax pot now;)

    I especially love 'Exposed' and your adorable dog. So cute!

  2. Ooh, lots of beautiful work - I love the Adventure piece, and I particularly love the birds with crowns, what gorgeous, vibrant colours they are. I really like your use of paint cards too, they look very effective like that. It's great to see you've been so busy, despite the lure of the great outdoors!!

  3. Love the paint fans, Ter! It reminds me of an old flapper hat. And Claymore is adorable. I also really like the Adventure and the yellow bird. I'm glad you had a chance/motivation to get back into the studio. I love seeing your art and it is very inspiring to me!

  4. The wax really does finish of your pieces beautifully. Love the adventure piece...You don't need to go anywhere other than your imagination to have an adventure!

  5. SO much goodness here!! I LOVE your collage (and doesn't the best work come when we indulge ourselves)? and LOVE LOVE LOVE your fabric journal!! Especially the hat of paint chips :) YOU MUST consider submitting that journal when it's done!! xoxo
