Meet the Drawing Group
I've never been part of a drawing group but when I heard it was rather casual
and was meeting at the Grand Hotel Saloon in Old Bisbee, I decided to join in.
I'd done my exercise which you can see in my last post and we all brought
some pieces to work on too.
There was some live music to enjoy as well.
It was a small group just three of us.
This is Barbara who doesn't consider herself an artist
but she makes these wonderful "cake" assemblages.
Here's our friend Julio wearing one on his 69th birthday
at the Screaming Banshee Pizza restaurant.
I got to see some more of her "cakes" across the street from the saloon where her husband
has a studio with some of his magnificent sculpture/assemblages.
Liz Hampton Derivan is a photographer and encaustic artist.
Have a visit to her blog here. I couldn't show her most recent encaustic
that she was showing us because she's putting it in for a submission and can't publish it.
I will tell you it's luminescent and wonderful.
Here's her eyedropper inking.
I really like the way it turned out!
