Monkey du jour

Monk du jour is a slap dash collage I just knocked together. You can see in the photo nothing on it is even dry yet! It's on a 5"X7" panel which was painted black. Vintage papers and red acrylic. My typical monkey shape and design...

Had a delightful spontaneous afternoon at Jerry's Artarama. They had a last minute encaustic demonstration with a wonderful visiting artist, Gina Adams. Learned that a lot of what I had tried before with this medium was totally wrong...including ventilation and heating up toxic things. Oh well, hope I haven't done too much damage to my lungs. Soon, of course, I will do an encaustic monkey.

Still uncharacteristically cool here in Austin. Blissful time before the hellish heat!
