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!
