Ah, I have finished the 30-Day Art Challenge in exactly thirty days! Below are my final six encaustic art pieces.
The most significant thing I have learned about this process is letting creativity in and then letting go of outcome. I purposefully tried to make pieces that were different from my usual creations. No Buddhas and not even one bird. I couldn’t help but include a butterfly in one piece and yes, I did have eggs, but my aim was to be less literal with my pieces and to allow the “cures” to come to me. I worked with color, texture and shape more than anything and then meditated on each art piece before knowing the cure. I never set out to create a certain cure; the cure always appeared after the process of creation.
I also learned about trusting my intuitive process during these thirty days. I didn’t create one art piece a day, for heating up encaustic wax and setting up my work station takes some doing, and I also didn’t place any less value on a piece I created in 15 minutes vs. a piece I created in an hour. All of my art came from a creative source/force in me and I wanted to honor my art equally.
Without further adieu, here are my last six:
