We’ve been learning to use cold wax medium with oil paint at the Artisans Barn in Uniontown, WA (Instructor: Vickie Edwards). It’s great for layering and textures. My piece that’s in the show is in this new (to me) medium.
We are using a found wooden frame and making a papier mache surface to paint. The inspiration comes from a recent yoga retreat. I am a novice at yoga but it always feels good.
This was created at an iconography retreat at St. Gertrude’s Monastery in Cottonwood, Idaho led by Father Damian Higgins. Next week I will be in Boise at an iconography class taught by Deacon Matthew Garrett.
