I had another post on the burner and then this popped up in my email.
My studio guests this afternoon went home with Undeclared Boundaries. It was a lovely visit and I forgot how energized I get having people in the studio and sharing my enthusiasm for encaustic with others.
We smelled the cupcake shaped medium. Played with the torches and marveled at how many brushes I have! I showed them how to buff the surface with a clean cotton t-shirt and reminded them to dust the top of the frame occasionally.
Within the time it took me to have lunch, a cup of coffee and some journal writing they did this! My heart was singing. Their visit splashed some water on my warm weather lull and reminded me why I do what I do.
If you find yourself in a lull
a) pull up your origin story and sit down for a tale.
b) share something you love with someone else.
Guaranteed pleasure bomb.
