Salem Art Group (SAG) has a play day.

 Nancy Ing had the group over for a day of encaustics. The first thing you notice is the sweet smell of honey that is the wax. We had a tour of the house and beautiful studio space then got to work.
 Nancy and Katy gave us a short tutorial and we were off and running.

 I wish I had pictures of the groups pieces each so unique.
 We had take out for lunch....then
 we tryed a Dragon fruit from Veitnam.
 Watched a funny short video on how to open it. Not too hard cut it in half.
 We clicked spoons and all tasted it. It tasted like a very bland watermelon, we were not very impressed. The build up was the adventure. 
 This is my piece "Owl in the Woods"  the panel was black and I painted with white wax. I'm looking forward to trying this again.

Looks like the SAG play date was a great day. I love wax, especially going to someone else's studio to play in it.
