The Winner is….

Quiltmom Anna!  Thanks for all of your comments everyone. It was a task to write down each commenter & cut & fold little strips to have my DH draw a name from the bag. I remember a long time ago getting an e-mail from Anna. She wasn’t blogging yet back then, just reading & leaving comments. This time it paid off for her. Congrats Anna. I’ll get busy & make your prize & send it out to you ASAP!

Today I dabbled in another type of art. Encaustic Painting. The teacher was Sheary Clough Suiter  .

My friends Mindy & Hope & Lindsey took the class too. This was their second time around. I’ll have to get pictures of their pieces to share here.

On my trip to Asheville recently I got to see the studio of an encaustic artist. I was blown away! What a treat to be able to take a class. I'd love to do that some day.

Wow Deb,
I am one lucky girl- thank you so much for choosing my name. I really am a fortunate one. I will post something in my blog when I write in the next couple of days.
Warmest regards,

I'm not familiar with encaustic painting, it looks amost like enamel. Please explain. I love your birch trees.

Hello Deb. I have never seen this technique and I really like how it turned out. I will look forward to seeing what happens to the second one. It sorta looks like it will end up being "Fireweeds"??? Hugs Judy
