Ocean and Beach

Inspiration from our trips to the beach in felt! I used different sizes of yarn and some random shapes that looked like waves - not quite sure I'm done with this one.

Hi Beth-
Yes it's me, :) can't wait to have it on my wall... it's my first and only encaustic painting. Great... I'll add your blog to my list and be honored to be added to yours.

Yep, it's all felt and held together only by needle felting. I'm hoping to resolve it soon. I wanted it to mostly be about color but now realize that's not going to be 'enough'.

Happy Days,
Brenda

I am intrigued by your felting machine never knew they existed)and love the pieces that you are producing! The grid is a great structure - endless paintings can happen in that framework! Nice!

Thank you, Martha! They really are cool, you might like one :).

Funny you should mention Soulemama - because I read her blog everyday! I just love her philosophy as a mom and artist. She's due to have her 4th baby next month. (whoa!) What a following she has, I think it's great that she can make a living by sharing her creative spirit.

ps love the new avatar - isn't that from a series you did? Happy weekend!
