Epiphany: making things is good for me

I have been painting here and there...when I can fit it in, as always. Finally got set up to do encaustics and I am loving it. Except for when I nearly lit the whole thing on fire. Ever believe in mischievous pixies trying to destroy the world? I do, because I swear I didn't turn the heat up to 450 degrees on the wax pan!

First Big Encaustics Painting...what a pain to get that much wax the flow the way you want it! Sheesh!

Ben and I were inspired to make fresh pasta on Monday. It was a fun process.

Life has been better. Last week wasn't so bad. Lots of fun things are upcoming and provide small steps toward summer. I long for the days of being home.
