The shows run while the Fifth International Encaustic Conference is in full swing, which I am also thrilled to be attending for the fourth year in a row...as a "soakin' in all up" participant, a lecturer and a post conference instructor. I always learn so much...

So many great events and opportunities along with burying my toes in the sand!

your work is amazing.
i have been in 'slump' for a couple of weeks, and i've even started wondering if i should even be doing this art thing.
well, today, after visiting your blog for the second time, i was so inspired by one of your pieces "The Circle Cannot Be Squared", and the idea of circles and squares was with me all day. and at about 4 pm in the studio i started working on a piece, and although not yet finished, i would like to send you a photo, so you can see it. i am thrilled.
let me know if you'd like to see it, if not no problem, i know you are busy. just thought i'd ask.

Catherine, so nice to get a preview of your beautiful work. I'm looking forwardd to seeing it in person - SOON!

Brilliant, inspiring artwork!
I came to your blog through Nancy Natale's, and I'm glad to have found it.
Your blog also gives very interesting information about the vibrant art life in your part of the world (very different to where I live, although here are lots of artists, too!).

Catherine - you are wildly inspirational - your art, self and project. Such a pleasure to meet you while I drafted behind David Andrew at Castle Hill. I hope the conference was successful. What a hum of activity.
Take care,
