Making Order out of Chaos
This past week I have been making jewelry which resulted in all my bead boxes becoming a disaster. So this is just a little bit of the mess of my reorganizing. I had piles of colors all over the tables in the house. I worked on organizing for 2 days but now everything is in its place. Sometimes I can handle only so much disorder. I can get such pleasure of putting things in little piles of color and shape and making order out of chaos.
I found this video on twitter this morning. Its an advert for these silicone tools that look really great. I also liked watching this artist and her philosophy about using the tools. They also have wedges that work well with encaustic painting and would be great for mixed media. I may have to get some of these, yes Dick Blick has them.
This little guy should be arriving at my doorstep today. Its a self igniting torch for encaustic painting. I have been re-watching all the video's from Judy Wise's encaustic painting DVD. I am looking forward to doing some of the exercises I didn't do while the class was live. I hope the UPS driver comes early rather than later. I want to play.
