I’m taking a workshop this weekend from a delightful Seattle-based artist named Stephanie Hargrave. Stephanie paints the most beautiful encaustic paintings (see her portfolio here) and is teaching an “Encaustic on Clay” workshop this weekend through Northwest Encaustic.

I had such a wonderful time yesterday, and was the last one to leave after 8 hours in the studio! And I’m ready to go back for more today.

It’s so difficult for me to treat myself to things like this, and on Friday evening I was thinking perhaps I should reconsider, as I have so much to do. But then I thought, “No, this is probably exactly what I need.”

And I was right!
