first attempt

this is my first attempt at encaustic painting. it was harder to o than I thought it would be. it's a great practice in art because you may have an idea in your mind of what you want to create but because the wax reacts so differently with each stroke it comes out totally different - in a good way

Neato Artist: Somavenus

This great shop features photos, zines and funky glass pendants by the one and only Melanie (aka Soma)! The beautiful rich colors in her photos and jewelry make her art some of my personal favorite. Imagine my excitement when I found out she was local....and I mean local! I was a fan long before but then I met her and actually got to work with her. I can't believe I finally found someone who loves old rusty stuff as much as I do! Besides having the coolest hair around, she's also totally down to earth and funny. Her love for travel is clear in her vibrant pictures and her passion for art has really inspired me! Check out her shop at I think you'll find that her art will make your day just a little bit brighter!
