Shawna Moore: Encaustic Painter

I had a visit with an encaustic artist from Oregon this past weekend who introduced me to the work of Shawna Moore. This video provides wonderful insight into the creative process.

I have been watching the old movie Painters Painting. When there is not nearby a community of artists you are talking to I find these movies and books very helpful. So thanks for this video!
Thanks too for your comments on the stickiness of encaustic. I am really cutting back on the amount of oil I'm adding but I'm worried the vibrant colors I want will be lost. I may have to resort to using R&F, which I really like, but the cost is a bit much for me sometimes.

Joyce, thanks for sharing my video. I am actually originally from Oregon and did live a bit in Santa Fe. Now I live in Montana where the movie was made.
