encaustic class

sometimes the best laid plans just don't work out as expected
today's class was a long trial of my patience
i knew exactly what i wanted to do
i even dreamt about it
i could see it in my head but it just didn't want
to translate onto the wax
i think i will try this again next class
or wait until the right element fits
or should i just walk away?
or leave it as is?
the one good thing about wax is the you can always
scrape it off and start all over again!

I like it. There's texture, but not too much and not too little.

But I'm no artist. So don't take me too seriously.

I like it too, though I don't know anything about encaustic stuff, and it *is* your art, so *you* need to be happy with it.

I do, however, like when things go wrong/different from planned and you find some new and exciting thing to play around with and get distracted by. Maybe try to figure out what appeals/doesn't appeal about how it is now and then go from there.

I like this even though I have no idea what I should be looking for. I see bumps and bubbles that I am sure are the wax and I think it gives it surface texture. I like the colors too. I would love to touch it.

Go with your gut,,if you like it then leave it. As you say, you can always come back and scrape it all off!

I don't know what you wanted this to be, but I like what you have done.
